The popular Swedish homeware and furniture store IKEA is coming to Queens next summer in Rego Park.

IKEA Queens will take over 115,000 square feet of space within the Rego Center shopping mall at the corner of Queens Boulevard and Junction Boulevard.

The company said it is was attracted to the Rego Center mall given its proximity to public transportation. The center is served by the E, M and R subway lines and by several bus lines.

IKEA announced today that it would open in summer 2020. The Queens IKEA will be the company’s third store within the five boroughs, following its long-standing location in Brooklyn and its new Manhattan Planning Studio, which opened in April.

The new store will feature thousands of IKEA products available to purchase and take home, while larger furniture items will be displayed and available for delivery. It will also offer Swedish cuisine and family-friendly spaces for shoppers with children.

“With a growing community of more than 900,000 households, Queens was a natural next destination for IKEA in New York City,” said Leontyne Green Sykes, Chief Operating Officer, IKEA Retail U.S.

“We know that more than half of Queens’ residents travel via public transportation, and we selected Rego Park … to meet the unique needs of this customer.”

No idea what’s with all the low intelligence posts or trolling, but what do you think food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, and literally the Social in Society Security are? Neither socialism not capitalism is a apply-all apparatus in our society. One medium excels at solving certain socioeconomic issues than the other. Stop fighting for the wrong issues.


I would love to see a Walmart open somewhere in Flushing. But, it will never happen because the politicians are against it.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
