I think it's such a destination store that exact location was much less important than cheap land.
And the location being where it is, you have to think that their people are looking at a map and thinking that the third and final local IKEA will be just perfect around I-35W and 287, in about 5 years' time.

I used to be excited about Ikea, but I've come to the decision that it's mostly a bunch of cheap junk and the faucet water at the "Dallas location" is the nastiest I've ever had. I would guess bottled water and soft drink sales are through the roof in the cafe.

I am also shocked that IKEA did not pick a location further West. At LEAST Arlington. If I were building one? I-30 and Eastchase Pkwy. I absolutely love IKEA. Everything about it. High quality for the cheap prices. And I like simple furniture. If I were Mark Zuckerberg I would still have IKEA furniture. I even like putting it all together. My first condo in the Tower was completely furnished with IKEA stuff. It all fit in the back of my pickup to bring it home and I had a houseful of furniture for like $800. Still have one piece from that collection. The rest? The lady that bought my condo bought all the IKEA furniture for the catalog prices. (She did not want to or was not able to put it together herself)

I am with you, Brian. If I were Zuckerburg, I would live in the catalog.
I am ok with the location. Straight shot on I-20 to Grand Praire. Bonus for me, now I'll have an IKEA close to my parents and my in-laws. Great development for GP.

The groundbreaking for the IKEA Grand Prairie store took place today, per this press release. However, I found this unexpected tidbit within:
"...and plans for a third Metroplex store were submitted last month to the City of Fort Worth."
The obvious guess for a location would be somewhere along 35W between 287 and 114 -- any other possible spots?

Well perhaps Ridgmar will go with the open air concept and IKEA will be an anchor. Although, 35W up north might be an option as well. However, there is always Waterside, Clearfork and Left Bank.
