Ikea Eyes Second Nashville-Area Location

Ikea is submitting plans to the metropolitan government of Nashville and Davidson County, TN, for a second location in the Nashville area. Pending approvals, construction of Ikea Nashville could begin in spring 2019 with an opening in summer 2020.

Located approximately 13 miles southeast of downtown Nashville in the Antioch area, the 341,000-square-foot proposed Ikea store would be built on 36 acres on the western side of Interstate 24 as part of the 300-acre Century Farms master-planned mixed-use development.

“We are excited at the possibility of growing our southeastern U.S. presence with a Nashville store,” said Lars Petersson, Ikea U.S. president. “This location would provide our already 140,000 Nashville-area customers their own store and introduce the unique Ikea shopping experience to others throughout middle Tennessee.”

The home furnishings retailer currently operates 43 stores in the U.S.
