It’s official ladies and gentlemen! IKEA will be opening a store in Winnipeg!

The Swedish furniture company has purchased a piece of the former CN Intermodal Terminal site at Kenaston Boulevard and Sterling Lyon Parkway (not the Polo Park location that I had originally bet on)

The southwest Winnipeg store will be 350,000-square-feet and open sometime between late 2011 and early 2013.

The deal is pretty much inked and awaiting approvals from the province and the City of Winnipeg.

Thanks for the tip gflux!
