Since the company was founded in Sweden in 1943, IKEA has offered a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishings at prices so low that as many people as possible can afford them.
There are currently 443 IKEA stores in 59 markets around the world. In 1985, we opened our first US store right outside Philadelphia, and we’ve come a long way since then—continually evolving to meet and inspire our customers, whenever and however they like to shop with us. IKEA Retail US operates 51 customer-meeting points across the country, which includes 50 stores and one IKEA Planning Studio in Manhattan.
The retail locations are supported by 11 distribution and customer fulfilment units, three service centers, and more than 18 000 coworkers who are passionate about home furnishings and making life better for many. As IKEA is a purpose-led brand, we aim to have a positive impact on people and the planet. Therefore, we have also invested in two windfarms, two solar parks, and 135 000 acres of forest in the US.
When we began fiscal year 2020, no one could have imagined that a global pandemic would change our daily lives. Health and safety have always been a priority at IKEA, and it became paramount as we faced the reality of COVID-19. More than ever, during FY20 IKEA Retail US was driven by our shared values and purpose, and not by profits. Throughout the pandemic, we balanced the needs of the business while meeting the needs of our customers as they rediscovered a new meaning to life at home. Backed by the resilience and hard work of our coworkers, we came together to make life a little better for our customers and communities. While tested by these unexpected challenges, we remained focused on our coworkers and on making IKEA a great place to work, expanding our presence into city centers, our ongoing digital transformation, and a heightened focus on sustainability.US states we’re located in:
