This time next year, Ikea will be open in Grand Prairie.
The Swedish home furnishings superstore breaks ground on its Grand Prairie store this morning at 10:30 a.m. It's the biggest new retail project in the southwest Dallas suburb since Grand Prairie Premium Outlet opened in 2012.
The 290,000-square-foot Ikea store will employ 300 people when it opens in fall 2017. Ikea first announced its plans for a second store in the market last year. Its first store in North Texas opened in Frisco in 2005.
