Could Perth be getting a new IKEA?
Speculation is the Swedish mothership is eyeballing Bunnings in Midland.
If Bunnings get the greenlight for a mega store in the old saleyards, IKEA would take over the current Bunnings along Great Eastern Highway, Community News reported.
They also reported that an IKEA spokeswoman said that plans to open a Midland store had not yet been confirmed.
“Ikea is always exploring opportunities to expand and be more accessible to more people, however we do not currently have confirmed plans to open a store in Midland,” she told the paper.
Hear that? They don’t have confirmed plans.
We reckon we’ll be swapping snags for meatballs sometime soon.
