The Ikea in Queens, New York at the Rego Center shopping mall is now open to the public for shopping. This store is the first in the U.S. with a new, smaller format, offering a full range of products across 115,000 square feet of space. Through inspiring room sets and digital tools focused on sustainable, small-space living solutions, the Queens store is built for the unique lifestyle of New Yorkers, the company said.
“At Ikea, we’re on a journey to transform our business to meet our customers wherever they are and how they like to shop,” said Javier Quiñones, president and chief sustainability officer, Ikea Retail U.S. “As life at home has taken on a new meaning this year for so many people, our customers’ needs and behaviors are changing too, and we hope our new Queens store will serve as a convenient and accessible source of inspiration and home furnishing expertise for New Yorkers.”
At Ikea Queens, customers will be able to purchase and take home portable home furnishing accessories and purchase all other products and set up home delivery for a flat rate fee of $49 for anywhere in New York City.
“We’re excited to welcome New Yorkers to our new store in Queens,” said Shahab Mollaei, market manager, Ikea Queens. “Every detail was created with the unique needs of New Yorkers in mind, from the proximity to public transportation and delivery and assembly options to the wide product range curated specifically to meet their dynamic lifestyles.”
As part of the global Ikea commitment to sustainability, the company has a goal of completing 100% of last-mile deliveries in New York City via electric vehicle by the end of January 2021.
