IKEA is expanding its footprint in the metro Atlanta area, with plans for a new store in Marietta.

The Swedish home furnishings company founded in 1943 has identified 34 acres of land near the western side of Interstate 75, between the Marietta Parkway and Delk Road exits, as the site of their new location.

“After 10 successful years in our Midtown location, we are excited to expand our presence with a new store in the Atlanta area,” said Lars Petersson, IKEA U.S. president. “This proposed Marietta store will bring the unique family-friendly shopping experience closer to customers in Cobb County and beyond.”

IKEA has not set a timeframe for construction to start or for the opening of the store. However, the company says they will begin filing plans for the new store with Marietta city officials in the future.
