Ikea has opened a new distribution center in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The 397,000 square foot facility allows the retailer to operate closer to its customers, and will fulfill customer orders from four existing Toronto area stores as well as e-commerce operations.
The new distribution center will also allow the retailer to work with shorter lead times, getting products to customers quicker, and contribute to satisfying corporate sustainability goals, Ikea noted.
“It is an exciting time for Ikea in Canada as we become even closer to our customers than ever before. Today’s grand opening is the first step in truly transforming Ikea into a true multi-functional retailer,” said Stefan Sjostrand, president, Ikea Canada.
