Ikea set for new store opening in Exeter

Published: 20 February 2018 - Kiran Grewal

Diggers have been busy building Ikea Exeter since the official ground breaking ceremony in spring 2017.

The store will be located just off Junction 30 on the M5, close to the A379 and will offer the full Ikea product range including a restaurant, crèche, playground and car park. All of which we hope will create a positive shopping experience for the whole family.

Ikea Exeter, which will be just a 45 minute car journey from Plymouth, has invested £80million in the 29,000sq m store on Newcourt Way, where it will bring its extensive range of “high-quality, affordable products” to the South West.

Ikea Exeter is aiming for a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ accreditation and will incorporate a number of green technologies including photovoltaic panels and rainwater harvesting because whilst the company claim to be helping improve everyday life at home – they "are also thinking about our planet".

What do you think?


Has there been a greater uptake from retailers sourcing British-made products in the face of Brexit?
