Largest IKEA in the US is about to open in CA - 456,000 square feet

The biggest Ikea in the United States is opening next week. Take a sneak peek at the brand new store in Burbank.

The new Ikea takes up 456,000 square feet, which is nearly twice the size of the old location. Crews broke ground for the new location in September 2015.

"The show room is about 50 percent bigger. The marketplace is about 50 percent bigger, but the self-serve warehouse is almost three times the size," said store manager Jeff O'Shaughnessy, comparing the new and old stores.

The new store will require 150 additional staff members and will have 1,700 parking spaces available.

Not everyone is excited about these changes. Some residents are concerned the projects will hurt Burbank's small town feel.

Most IKEA furniture is junk. I did get two nice cabinets that were perfect for displaying my shell collection.

I can't imagine what teenagers do in an enormous IKEA store for an entire night.
