Which 4 cities will get Ikea’s next Plan & Order points in 2024?

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Coinciding with the release of its 2023 Annual Summary, which shares strides the company made in affordability, sustainable practices, automation and equity and inclusion, Top 100 retailer Ikea U.S. announced that four of its Plan & order points with Pick-up locations will open in 2024.

“As we look back at the past year, I’m proud of the progress we’ve made in reducing our environmental impact and keeping affordability and accessibility at the forefront for all our customers,” said Javier Quiñones, CEO and chief sustainability officer at Ikea U.S. “Looking ahead, we are excited about our plans for new locations and services bringing the joy of Ikea to more hearts and homes.”

In 2024, Ikea U.S. will open Plan & order points with Pick-up in Austin, Texas, the Atlanta metropolitan area and two locations in the greater Los Angeles market, with more to come.

The Austin Plan & Order point with Pick-up will be the second Ikea location in the Austin area and is slated to open in the summer of 2024 in the Domain Shopping Center at 3306 Esperanza Crossing. With the addition of the Ikea Pick-up point, customers will be able to collect their purchases when and where it’s convenient for them.

These new format stores across the U.S. will increase accessibility for customers, who can receive support from Ikea experts to plan and order home furnishing solutions such as kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. Officials say more details will be shared about each location throughout the year.

In addition to new locations announced, Ikea U.S. will open Plan & order points with Pick-up in Annapolis and Gaithersburg, Md., and Katy, Texas, with other locations in the pipeline.
