It is HUGE news across the metro – IKEA is coming to Merriam, KS! Plans are underway for the store to be developed at the vacant strip mall situated off I-35 and Johnson Drive. The store, set to open in the fall of 2014, has been in demand from area residents who pushed for IKEA to come to Kansas City … similar to the push Kansas Citians made for Trader Joe’s to set up shop here. Now we’ll have both!
Landing big stores like these not only make residents very happy, but they’re important for the future growth of the metropolitan area and for the local economy. Congrats to the city of Merriam on this big success!
