Ikea's first NZ store coming to Auckland
Ikea is coming to Auckland, followed by the South Island - and it's bringing its famous meatballs, and up to 400 jobs.
Ikea's New Zealand manager, Will Edwards, confirmed on Friday morning the new Ikea store will open in Auckland, and he also promised to complement the store with a second store for the regions.
While he wouldn't give an exact time frame for the megastore launch, Edwards said it would take a number of years to set up. In the meantime, Ikea would open a popup shop in central Auckland.
