Based on permits filed with the state, and realty details mentioned in Ralph Bivin’s latest RNR Bulletin, Swedish Furniture Retailer, IKEA is working on opening a second location in the Houston area. The new store is to be located in the La Centerra Shopping Center in Katy. Rather than being a full-size showroom and warehouse 200k+ Sqft store, this new location will only clock in at about 5,000 Sqft. While IKEA has yet to publish details about this new store, it’s not a stretch to think that it will turn out much like their planned small format store in South Lake. One big difference, however, will be the store sizes, with the DFW area location coming in nearly double the size of the planned Cinco Ranch store. South Lake will include a Plan and Order Center, next to a Pickup Center. It’s not exactly clear what IKEA plans to bring to La Centerra, but a Plan & Order Center, which would include furniture displays, and product samples, better fits the description of the permits filed.
