IKEA Proposes Expanded Store in Burbank, Calif.

Goal to open new store in fall 2016




Swedish home furnishings retailer IKEA (Conshohocken, Pa., and Delft, The Netherlands) has submitted plans to the City of Burbank, Calif., for a new and larger store to replace its current location in the Los Angeles area.

Opening in November 1990, the current 242,000-square-foot IKEA Burbank was the brand’s first store in California and sixth in the U.S. The proposed 470,000-square-foot new store would be built on 22 acres, less than one mile from the original store, and have more than 1700 parking spaces. “Because of this store’s success, we are excited about the opportunity to build upon our established presence in Burbank with a new, roomier store so close to the existing one, and in the same city,” says Mike Ward, IKEA U.S. president.
