GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas -- City leaders and IKEA representatives will reveal renderings and site plans at a groundbreaking event Tuesday for the furniture giant’s new store in Grand Prairie.

The new IKEA will be located on the east side of SH 161 at Mayfield Road.

Scheduled to open in the fall of 2017, this will be the fourth IKEA in the state of Texas and the second in the Dallas-Fort Worth area -- the other being in Frisco.

IKEA is known for its huge buildings filled with an affordable, vast inventory of furniture items.

The new location in Grand Prairie will span 290,000 square feet and employ 300 workers.
