IKEA Coming to Rego Center Shopping Mall Summer 2020

IKEA is coming to Rego Center shopping mall in summer 2020 (IKEA)

Sept. 24, 2019 By Allie Griffin

The popular Swedish homeware and furniture store IKEA is coming to Queens next summer in Rego Park.

IKEA Queens will take over 115,000 square feet of space within the Rego Center shopping mall at the corner of Queens Boulevard and Junction Boulevard.

The company said it is was attracted to the Rego Center mall given its proximity to public transportation. The center is served by the E, M and R subway lines and by several bus lines.

IKEA announced today that it would open in summer 2020. The Queens IKEA will be the company’s third store within the five boroughs, following its long-standing location in Brooklyn and its new Manhattan Planning Studio, which opened in April.

The new store will feature thousands of IKEA products available to purchase and take home, while larger furniture items will be displayed and available for delivery. It will also offer Swedish cuisine and family-friendly spaces for shoppers with children.

“With a growing community of more than 900,000 households, Queens was a natural next destination for IKEA in New York City,” said Leontyne Green Sykes, Chief Operating Officer, IKEA Retail U.S. “We know that more than half of Queens’ residents travel via public transportation, and we selected Rego Park…to meet the unique needs of this customer.”

I do not know how this store is going to be Mobbed? It basic sales pertain to Furniture, Stuff you have to put together, they do have frames,glassware,dishes,pots and stuff like that.. But Mobbed?? I really do not think so after the first month.. We need a store like Kmart,Walmart, that type of store..

Finally some good news around here! I never even thought of IKEA coming this way. It’s a good company and they have a great cafeteria with very fair prices. It’s a win/win for the area, now give us a Whole Foods too!

I’d actually rather see a Trader Joes’s rather than a Whole “paycheck” Foods! Even as a Amazon Prime costumer Trader Joes’s is much more affordable and a nicer shopping experience. Getting to the Metropolitan location is very inconvenient w/o a car.

Wholly, agree!!! We, now, just need Whole Foods, here!!! And, there are two (2) possible locations for a great Whole Foods, in the near future, with the new Class-A building projects that are going up on the South side of Queens Blvd., between Yellowstone, & the Express stop.

Also, for those of you who actually believe the ‘Whole paycheck’ myth, just try to open your minds to the fact that Whole Foods has great products, excellent sales, and the myth is ONLY that. Just learn to shop, smartly, for wholesome foods.

…the 115,000 sf for the new IKEA, encompasses the spaces from both the Sears, & Khol’s, closed stores.
