IKEA sets opening date for next Toronto urban store

IKEA Canada has unveiled the grand opening date for a small-format store in Toronto’s east end it announced at the end of 2022. The 7,489-square-metre store in Scarborough Town Centre will welcome its first customers on Aug. 23. It will feature the same one-way flow layout familiar to shoppers at larger IKEA locations, with two entrance-exit points each with their own check-out lanes. The Scarborough store builds on the smaller urban model debuted at IKEA’s Downtown Toronto – Aura store, which opened last year.
