IKEA Opens Smaller Format Store In New York

IKEA's new store in Queens, N.Y.

The newest IKEA location has opened at the Rego Center in Queens, N.Y., the retailer’s first store that showcases a new, smaller format.

Offering 115,000-square feet of space, the store offers what IKEA officials said are “inspiring room sets and digital tools focused on sustainable, small-space living solutions” for the unique lifestyle of New Yorkers.


“At IKEA we’re on a journey to transform our business to meet our customers wherever they are and how they like to shop,” said Javier Quiñones, president & chief sustainability officer, IKEA Retail U.S. “As life at home has taken on a new meaning this year for so many people, our customers’ needs and behaviors are changing too.

At IKEA Queens, customers will experience a new format that differs from the Planning Studio in Manhattan (opened April 2019) and traditional IKEA stores. 

Customers will be able to:

  • Purchase and take home portable home furnishing accessories that will be curated specifically for New Yorkers.
  • Purchase all other products and set up home delivery for a flat-rate fee of $49 for anywhere in New York City.
  • Enjoy self-pay and assisted check out options for a seamless shopping experience.
  • Schedule appointments with IKEA co-workers to plan kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms.

IKEA continues to transform its business to be more accessible for customers wherever they are. The Queens store will be the third location in New York City, complementing the Planning Studio in Manhattan and IKEA Brooklyn. IKEA also has stores in nearby Long Island, NY, Elizabeth, NJ, and Paramus, NJ and recently opened a customer fulfillment center in Staten Island to support demand in the market.
