Get ready for some meatballs.

It’s official: IKEA will open its doors on Nov. 28.

The announcement this morning heralded the opening of Winnipeg’s first-ever IKEA store, a massive 395,00-square-foot outlet located near Sterling Lyon Parkway and Kenaston Boulevard.

Store manager Stephen Bobko gave a media tour of the Swedish furniture retail outlet following the announcement.

The Winnipeg store will be the 13th in Canada.

More than 3,000 online applications have been received since IKEA announced in late June that it would hire 300 to 350 workers for the Winnipeg store.

The store will anchor the Seasons of Tuxedo retail development where Cabela's, the lavish big-box outdoors store, has already committed to building a 72,000-square-foot outlet.

There are a total of 325 IKEA stores around the world in 40 countries.
