IKEA, the popular Swedish furniture and homeware store, will open its first location in Queens later this month.

The retailer will open a 115,000 square-foot store in Rego Park — within the neighborhood’s Rego Center shopping mall–at the corner of Queens Boulevard and Junction Boulevard.

IKEA Queens will be the company’s third location within the five boroughs, adding to its long-standing store in Brooklyn and its Manhattan “Planning Studio,” which opened in April 2019.

“We’re excited to welcome New Yorkers to our new store in Queens,” said Shahab Mollaei, Market Manager, IKEA Queens. “Every detail was created with the unique needs of New Yorkers in mind, from the proximity to public transportation and delivery and assembly options, to the wide product range curated specifically to meet their dynamic lifestyles.”

The Queens store will be the first IKEA location in the country with a new, smaller format than its traditional store setups, according to the company.

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 home delivery at a flat fee.

It will also offer Swedish cuisine and family-friendly spaces for shoppers with children.

In addition, customers will be able to book appointments with IKEA staff to design and plan out their spaces.

  • The company strategically chose the Rego Center shopping mall to place its newest storefront due to its access to public transportation. The site is next to the 63rd Drive – Rego Park M/R station and just a block away from Q59 and Q60 bus stops.

As to “… just a block away from Q59 and Q60 bus stops …”, they clearly forgot to take the bus before deciding on its strategic value.
