Swedish home furnishings company Ikea says Winnipeg is its top priority for Canadian expansion, but it could still be years before a store is built here.
Madeleine Lowenborg-Frick, a spokeswoman for Ikea Canada, said this morning the company has identified a parcel of land in the city that it is interested in developing, but no deal has been signed yet.
She would not indicate what part of the city the company is eyeing.
"It is very premature for us to say anything at this point," Lowenborg-Frick said in a telephone interview, adding that there is no timeline in place for a Winnipeg store.
Yet, she said Winnipeg is a priority at Ikea for a new store in Canada.
"It is the market that we are taking the most serious look at right now for expansion."
