We're way excited to be getting an IKEA store in the Detroit area (say what you will about IKEA, but it's inexpensive, functional, and appealing in a modern/Scandinavian fashion sense). And of course, being the Detroit area, they give the following important stats on the Coming Soon! page for the Canton Store:
- Acres: 20 (primary parcel)
- Square Feet: 311,000
- Parking Spaces: 1300
What was also suprising is that in Sweden (where they apparently call it ik-ee-ah), where cars are not that common, the IKEA store looks the exact same. Big Box with a huge parking lot and lots of cars. Of course, I would think carrying your new desk and bedroom set on the train would be somewhat... troublesome.
