Officials will break ground Tuesday morning in Fishers on the state’s first IKEA store. The $40 million, 289,000 square-foot facility is expected to be complete in the fall of 2017.
The Swedish retailer announced last month it had hired contractors for the massive project. When complete, the store, which covers 35 acres near I-69 and 116th Street, is expected to employ about 250 people.
When IKEA announced it was opening the facility last November, Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness called the move a "big win" for the city. The ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Inside INdiana Business will be in attendance at the ground breaking ceremony and will have more in our afternoon INside Edge e-newsletter.
