The Rumor Mill Claims This Major Store Is Opening In Syracuse- Is It True?
The internet rumor mill in Central New York is claiming THIS major store is opening in Syracuse. Is it true?
Is Ikea opening in Syracuse?
Quick Answer- Yes, and no.
Long Answer- Ikea has launched a new pick-up location for the Syracuse area.
According to Syracuse.com, the Ikea pick-up location is located at 4530 Steelway Blvd South, Liverpool, N.Y. 13090.
Ikea orders will be available there for pickup Mondays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.; the warehouse is closed on Sundays, according to Ikea’s website."
Ikea says its pick-up locations are partner locations where qualifying online orders from ikea.com can be picked up for a flat-rate fee of $30.
So yes, Ikea has arrived. However, an actual store to go shopping in, has not. Ikea still has no brick-and-mortar stores in Upstate New York, and will never have one:
Ikea previously told syracuse.com that it would “not ever” open a store in Syracuse because its worldwide retail locations — which range in size from 260,000 to 340,000 square feet — require a population base of at least 2 million people to be successful."
So there you go, a little taste of the real thing.
