IKEA is set to open a new, smaller store in south Charlotte, offering interior design advice and furniture delivery services.

Some shoppers are curious about the impact on traffic and the overall experience in a smaller space.

Despite a decrease in home furnishings spending, IKEA had a record year in sales and aims to maintain momentum with the new location.

The store, located at the Promenade at Providence shopping center, is expected to open by the end of the summer, catering to customers seeking affordable, build-yourself products.

Ikea stores are designed to be immersive and experiential, with room displays, a variety of products to try out, and a cafeteria serving Swedish food.
