Garcia Named Ikea Columbus Manager

Ikea has appointed David Garcia Gatto as manager of its new store in Columbus, OH, which the company plans to open this summer.

Garcia was previously controller and operations manager of the Ikea store in Hicksville, NY, the company stated.

The 354,000-square-foot future Ikea Columbus is under construction on 33 acres of land at the northeastern corner of Interstate-71 and Gemini Place in the Polaris Centers of Commerce development. The store will include one of Ohio’s largest rooftop solar arrays, consistent with the solar presence at 90% of the company’s locations in the United States, the company noted.
