The expanded Ikea, just south of Seattle, has set an opening date.
The new, expanded Ikea in Renton, just south of Seattle, will open Wednesday, Feb. 22. The current store will be open through Monday, Feb. 20.
The new home-furnishing store was built on part of the old store’s parking lot. There has been off-site parking with shuttles during construction, and that will continue as the old store is demolished and a new lot is put in its place.
The new store is 399,000 square feet, with an updated layout and larger restaurant. It features the state’s largest rooftop solar array. Grand-opening events will be held in the fall.
