The distinct blue and yellow of Swedish flat pack giant Ikea will soon be part of the Canberra landscape. According to an article on the Canberra Times, ‘commercial sources around Canberra have confirmed the agreements have been signed to sell the 7.6ha site’ with an un-named interstate construction team poised to get on with the job.
Ikea will take up residence at the new Majura Parkway Estate, one more location for their list of stores which currently tops 260 across 25 countries.
The deal is yet to be officially confirmed, but is likely to be announced later this week.
How this will effect local independent furniture suppliers remains to be seen.
