How Large is the New IKEA Store?

STC’s IKEA boasts 7,489 square metres of shopping space, and it will carry more than 2,500 products, plus the iconic Swedish deli food restaurant – hej, köttbulle! (that’s Swedesh for hello, meatballs!).

The store will also have the same traditional one-way flow layout that’s seen at larger IKEA locations. Plus, you can find digital tools and a dedicated Planning Hub where you can discuss inspirational ideas for your next home project or remodel. 

“As a brand rooted in life at home, we hope our new store in the heart of Scarborough will serve as a convenient and accessible source of inspiration and home furnishing expertise,” Niclas Karlsson-Järnkrok, Market Area Manager at IKEA Canada, says. 

“Every detail was created with the unique needs of Scarborough residents in mind, from the proximity to public transportation and delivery and assembly options, to the wide product range curated specifically to help them with solutions to live a better everyday life at home,” Odette Walker, Market Manager at IKEA Scarborough Town Centre, adds.
