Ikea U.S. expanding new format in 2024 on heels of record year

Ikea plan and order point

Ikea U.S. is growing its newest store format across the United States.

The home furnishings and décor retailer announced the locations for four new “Plan & order point” stores (with pick-up)  that will open in 2024. The stores are planned for the Domain Shopping Center in Austin, Tex., the Atlanta metropolitan area, and two in the greater Los Angeles.

Additional locations are scheduled to open in Annapolis and Gaithersburg (Maryland), and Katy, Tex., with more to come.

The “Plan & order point” format is much smaller than traditional Ikea stores and offers personalized design consultations as well as serving as customer pickup points. No items are stocked in the store for take home.

“These new format stores across the U.S. will increase accessibility for customers without compromising on quality or design, and customers can receive support from IKEA experts to plan and order home furnishing solutions such as kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms,” the company stated in a release.  

In April 2023, Ikea announced plans to invest more than $2.2 billion during the next three years in its U.S. omnichannel growth strategy. The plans include opening nine “Plan & Order points” as well as 900 pick-up locations where customers can collect purchases.


The company also shared details about the past year in its FY23 annual summary. Ikea U.S had a record year, achieving more than $6.3 billion in total sales of goods and services. The company noted it grew 6.6% compared to the previous year despite the prevailing economic challenges.

During the year, Ikea U.S. made strides towards its mission to become climate-positive by 2030 and worked with social justice partners to create meaningful change: 

•Launched As-is online, a new service that allows Ikea members to shop gently used products from the comfort of their homes and expanded its “buy back & resell” service to more stores.

•Opened ultra-fast public EV chargers at several stores and will install a total of 500 public fast chargers and more than 300 fleet chargers in the coming years. 

•Contributed over $2.5 million in retail value of in-kind and financial donations to 280 different nonprofits.

•Advocated for legislation that aligns with Ikea values and mission including the Climate Corporate Data Accountability Act in California, Respect for Marriage Act, Equality Act and the Stop Tip-overs of Unstable, Risky Dressers on Youth (STURDY) Act.

The company also noted that it dispersed a total of $54.5 million to two thirds of U.S. co-workers as part of "One Ikea Bonus", a performance-based payout, in addition to an extra contribution to eligible co-workers' retirement plan through its Tack! Program.  It also enhanced benefits for co-workers including adding new gender-affirming covered medical procedures to the medical plan.

"As we look back at the past year, I'm proud of the progress we've made in reducing our environmental impact and keeping affordability and accessibility at the forefront for all our customers," said Javier Quiñones, CEO & chief sustainability officer at Ikea U.S. "Looking ahead, we are excited about our plans for new locations and services bringing the joy of IKEA to more hearts and homes."
