IKEA — which already has one of its super stores in Tempe — is opening the store at the Loop 101 and Bethany Home Road.
That is near the Westgate Entertainment District development. IKEA will start construction of the Glendale store in the fall of 2018 and it would open in the spring of 2020, according to the furniture and furnishings company. The store will total 348,000 square feet. Construction will create 500 jobs and there will be 300 retail workers and managers at the store when it opens, according to IKEA.
