Sneak Peek: IKEA opening in one week in Oak Creek

In one week there will be a new store to pick up everything you need for your home from furniture to decorations.

IKEA is opening its first location in Wisconsin in Oak Creek.

Shoppers can walk through 50 displays throughout the store from living rooms to kitchens.

There are 10,000 different designer items available throughout the store as well. 

Other amenities include a 300-seat restaurant and cafe where you can eat their famous Swedish meatballs.

Also, if the kids don't like shopping you can drop them off at a play area.

The store sits on 29 acres and is all on one floor, which the store manager says will make it easier for shoppers to get around.

"The one floor, for me, the advantage of it is it feels quite airy so with the higher ceilings throughout the building,” store manager Samantha Gravina said. “As well as the footprint gives us some flexibility to be able to show the products in a really good way. It also alows the flow of people to come through the store without any hindrance."

There is estimated to be up to 20,000 shoppers on grand opening day so there will be traffic, but Gravina says they are working with several agencies to make sure the flow of traffic is smooth.
