IKEA announced Wednesday that it will open its Sweetwater store at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 27, marking its largest store in South Florida.

The Swedish retailer’s newest store — under construction for more than a year — will join its Sunrise store, which opened in 2007. It will be IKEA’s fourth in Florida and 39th in the United States.

IKEA is completing construction on the 416,000 square foot store, and already has hired more than 350 local workers.

The IKEA store, which will have nearly 1,500 parking spaces, is on 14.6 acres adjacent to the Dolphin Mall, at the intersection of the Dolphin Expressway (SR 836) and Florida’s Turnpike.

Customers can begin lining-up at the store on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014 – 48 hours in advance of the doors’ opening, the company said.
