Ikea Gears Up for Grand Opening With Local Events

It’s not quite time to start lining up outside of Ikea, but the store is getting closer to opening.

To make sure you’re as excited as possible the company is popping up around town with products for you to covet and giveaways.

On August 29 from 5:30-7 p.m. parents and kids can enjoy Family Day at Sporting Park, complete with appearances from players before they square off against the Houston Dynamo. Then Ikea is taking over the big screen for a movie night at Boulevard Drive-In, which will include games, snacks and prizes beginning at 6 p.m. on September 5.

Take a seat at the company’s living room setting at the Prairie Village Jazz Festival September 6 between 3 and 11 p.m. to score inspiration for your own home (or simply take a load off). And September 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. festival-goers at Art Westport can check out gallery-type settings featuring products on display.

Can’t make any of those events? You might still score a sneak peek at the store’s merchandise as three glass Ikea trucks drive throughout the metro.
