“We are thrilled to have begun building North America’s largest store in Montreal,” Danielle Plamondon, manager of IKEA’s Montreal store, said in a statement. “The new store will offer our loyal Montreal customers an improved shopping experience with more inspiration, more products on hand and more in-store services.”
The new IKEA store shall be taking advantage of our generations’ newest technology, and will be 40 percent more energy efficient than its last wave of stores built in the early 2000s.
Although construction to the store on Cavendish Blvd. has already begun, the 469, 694 square feet of space will only open its’ doors sometime in the summer of 2013. We will then be introduced to 54 “inspirational room settings”, three full-home settings, a restaurant that sits about 600 people, more than 1, 400 parking spaces and a children’s play area.
