IKEA identifies site in Broomfield, Colorado for potential second Denver-area store

RBR Staff Writer Published 05 August 2016

Home furnishings retailer IKEA is looking Northward to Broomfield, Colorado as potential location for a second Denver-area store.

An exact timeframe for submitting specific store plans or for actually opening the store have not yet been determined.

The company currently has a store in Centennial, which it opened in 2011. For the second store, it is looking at a 123-acre parcel 17 miles north of Denver, at the intersection of I-25 and East Baseline Road (Colorado Highway 7).

The second store would feature about 10,000 exclusively designed items, 50 room-settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area, and a restaurant serving Swedish specialties such as meatballs with lingonberries and salmon plates, as well as American dishes.

Other features include a ‘Children’s IKEA’ area in the Showroom, baby care rooms, play areas throughout the store, and preferred parking.

The company said the potential Broomfield store would provide significant annual sales and property tax revenue for local governments.

After establishing a store timeline, IKEA will assess potential on-site power generation to complement its existing US renewable energy presence at about 90% of its locations in the country.

IKEA US president Lars Petersson said: “We are excited at the opportunity for a potential second Denver-area IKEA store at this location in Broomfield.

“A store in this retail corridor would complement our strong presence established in Centennial and eventually provide customers in the northern part of the Front Range an IKEA store closer to them.”
