Ikea submits plans for store in Las Vegas area

Conshohocken, Pa. -- Ikea is submitting plans to Clark County, Nevada, for a Las Vegas-area store that would increase the Swedish retailer’s presence in the western United States.

The application marks the beginning of an approval process that could lead to the store’s opening as early as summer 2016.

The proposed 351,000-sq.-ft. Ikea would be built on 26 acres in the Spring Valley area of Clark County, approximately 13 miles southwest of downtown Las Vegas. The retailer said it will evaluate potential on-site power generation possibilities to complement its current U.S. renewable energy presence at nearly 90% of its U.S. locations.

“We look forward to continue growing our western U.S. presence with Ikea Las Vegas,” said Ikea U.S. CFO Rob Olson. “This accessible location would provide the already 101,000 Las Vegas-area customers a store of their own and introduce the unique Ikea shopping experience to other consumers throughout Clark County and Southern Nevada.”
