Norfolk Builds on Economic Momentum With News IKEA Coming to City 
In what Mayor Paul Fraim called a “game changer” for Norfolk residents and the region, IKEA, the world’s largest furniture retailer announced Tuesday it is building a new store in Norfolk.

The announcement comes on the heels of an unprecedented and diverse list of new projects bringing thousands of jobs and millions in new tax revenue to Norfolk: Waterside District, The Main, Movement Mortgage, ADP, Norfolk Premium Outlet Mall, a boutique glass art centric hotel, and now IKEA. 

The new IKEA location will be part of a new major retail hub situated adjacent to the Norfolk Premium Outlets currently under construction on Northampton Boulevard near the Interstate 64 interchange. The site would be IKEA’s second store in Virginia.
