Ikea expanding Boston-area store's warehouse
April 1, 2013,
STOUGHTON, Mass. — Home furnishings giant Ikea said it will expand the warehouse section of its store here by nearly 59,000 square feet.
The work, which begins this fall and is expected to be completed by fall of 2014, will bring the Boston market complex up to 415,575-square feet. The store will remain open with its full offering during the construction.
Ikea opened its Stoughton store in November 2005.
In a release, Frank Briel, store manager, said Ikea has been "thrilled" with the store's success, "But, as its customer base and sales continue to grow - along with the product assortment we offer - the size of the store's warehouse capacity now is less than ideal,"
The expansion "will allow us to improve the shopping experience, to meet our customers' needs more easily, and to enhance our ability to keep lowering prices," he added.
