New jobs are coming to our region.

IKEA announced a pick-up and order location coming to Kitchener, and now we know it’s coming this Spring.

It’ll mean the hiring of 35-40 workers.

IKEA Canada’s Stephanie Kerr explains what a pick-up and order store entails.

“They’re about one 10th the size of a regular IKEA store. Customers are going to be able to go in, touch, and feel the range. There’s going to be beautiful show-room set ups, so people are going to be able to see all their products. And of course they’ll be able to pick up orders, and place orders.”

You’ll also be able to go to, say, the Burlington IKEA, and if you see anything that may not be in Kitchener, you can get it shipped here, instead of having to bring it home with you.
