Whenever I work with out of town buyers, one of the most asked questions is “Does Denver have an IKEA?”
Now I have a new answer…”we will soon!”
My first experience was a little over a year ago in an IKEA that was jam packed in Los Angeles, yes, the country was having a recession and yes, the state of California was millions of dollars in the hole, but IKEA was thriving that weekend, well, apparently more than just that weekend.
Well Denver, ahem…I mean our suburb, Centennial, good job!
Much needed details are:
- Where: West of I-25 between Dry Creek and County Line Roads
- Ground Breaking: May 4, 2010
- Grand Opening: Fall 2011
- Jobs Created: 500 for Construction, then 400 when it opens
My Facebook Friends have now requested a Trader Joe’s, but I am loving Sprouts Farmer’s Market (Havana and Mississippi) I say support those who really want to be here, too bad for Trader Joe’s unless we can get one or the other in the city limits.
