The first IKEA store in Queens opened Monday.

The popular Swedish furniture and homeware retailer opened a 115,000 square-foot store in the Rego Center shopping mall, at the corner of Queens Boulevard and Junction Boulevard.

The store is now open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. It’s the first IKEA location in the country with a new, smaller format than its traditional store setups, according to the company.

The new store features thousands of IKEA products available to purchase and take home. It also has larger furniture items on display, which can be purchased for home delivery.

The retailer will also offer Swedish cuisine and family-friendly spaces for shoppers with children.

In addition, customers can book appointments with IKEA staff at the new location for help designing their home interiors.

  • The company strategically chose the Rego Center shopping mall to place its newest storefront due to its access to public transportation. The site is next to the 63rd Drive – Rego Park M/R station and just a block away from Q59 and Q60 bus stops.

The new Rego Park store is the retailer’s third location within the five boroughs, adding to its long-standing store in Brooklyn and its Manhattan “Planning Studio,” which opened in April 2019.
