The home furnishings retailer IKEA is planning to move to the Midwest. They are planning to open up ace 650,000 ft.² distribution center in Joliet Illinois by 2009 to support five major stores in the Midwest area including two in Chicago.
The plan is still in the early stages, as the property owner and development companies are still putting together the final solution. The new distribution center to bring new jobs for 150 employees in the area, but there are still many hurdles to cross before becomes a reality according to Gunther Lubben a director of development at Ryan Companies, the current owner of the property in question.
The city of Joliet was chosen for its sophistication and potential to handle a distribution center of this size.
