Poll: Would You Like to See Ikea in St. Louis?

With more rumors circling about the furniture store, what are your thoughts on it?

Florissant and St. Louis residents have pined for an Ikea store to come to the area for years, and a new rumor of the store coming sparked major attention and chatter.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the store remains a rumor and could still be a few years away. According to the article, the store could go in the Hadley Township area near Interstate 40 and Hanley Road, but the developer is focused on filling up the 62 properties of the area.

So as moans and groans fill the air until official word on an Ikea store, what are your thoughts?

Why would you want an Ikea store in St. Louis, and where would you like to see it?

I like IKEA because it sells reasonably priced and very good looking furniture. I would love to see it located where the old Chrysler plant was.

I would LOVE it if IKEA came to St. Louis! Great store with great prices. When I'm out of town and the city has an IKEA, I always make a point of going there.

It should be where the Crestwood mall is! Perfect location and would boost local businesses around Crestwood Kirkwood and webster groves!!

It would never go In Crestwood Mall...Restrictions placed by the planning committee etc... would leave a bad taste in the Mouth of any aspiring business that wants to locate to Crestwood. Don't believe me ? attend a board of Aldemen meeting sometime.

If IKEA came, I would have no problem designing my new home on a small budget. In fact, I'll wait.

That would be great! I've often tried to figure out how to get something here from the Chicago store.

Ikea is one thing I miss about Chicago. It would do well here, there is no doubt about it!

Have been to IKEA in the states and in Germany and they are great. I think the perfect place would be the old Chrysler plant site in Fenton. The mayor there loves sales tax and they would bring people to Fenton from several hundred miles away. They could stay in all the hotels in Fenton and it is on a major highway.

you're all forgetting about the abandoned Northwest Plaza site. Close to the airport for shipping, ideal location.

Agree with Northwest site!!!!

It is coming to Richmond Heights if the Developer can buy out the residents at Hadley Township
