IKEA purchases land for store in Miami-Dade area
November 27, 2012 by James
The South Florida Business Journal recently reported that IKEA, a Swedish-based major retailer of affordable furnishings options, has spent $31.5m purchasing land for the construction of a megastore west of Doral, Florida – adjacent to the Dolphin Mall.
The area purchased is 15-acres in size and will be the home to a store of 417,000 square feet. It will be located near Florida’s Turnpike and the Palmetto Expressway. The store is no doubt looking for local print services at the moment, perhaps using flyer printing and poster printing to make the public aware of their entry into the South Florida market for furniture and other accessories for the home.
This store is the first for IKEA in the Miami-Dade area, and the fourth one in Florida. Sunrise, Tampa, and Orlando are the locations for the other three stores.
Positioned among the world’s biggest furniture companies, IKEA offers a wide range of functional and well-designed home furnishing products that are both affordable and of high quality. To achieve this, the company has been able to maximize its use of raw materials and adapt its production methods so that it has been able to keep costs low while still meeting the needs and preferences of its customers.
All of IKEA’s products and furnishings are still developed in Sweden. They are intended to represent the healthy and fresh lifestyle of the Swedish people and are human-centered and child friendly, modern but not trendy, and functional yet attractive.
