​​GRAND PRAIRIE - The City of Grand Prairie has approved plans for a 297,000-sf IKEA store set to break ground next fall.

At its Dec. 15 meeting, the City Council gave a seal of approval to the Swedish company’s development plans for a store on a 30-acre plot along the eastern side of SH 161 and Mayfield Rd., north of I-20. 

Construction, which is set to be complete in fall 2017, will include 1,150 parking spaces.

The new location will stock 10,000 items​, 50 room settings and three model home interiors.

Like the Frisco store, Grand Prairie’s store will include a supervised children’s play area and 350-seat restaurant serving items like IKEA’s famous Swedish meatballs.

Construction of the store is expected to create 500 jobs. Around 300 workers will be employed in full-time and part-time positions at the store once it opens.
