Ikea is finally in Upstate New York — sort of.
“We are excited to confirm that we’ve recently opened our Pick-Up Location in Liverpool, NY, which offers IKEA customers an option to purchase qualifying furniture orders online for a flat rate of $30 and pick them up closer to home,” the website says. “As IKEA U.S. continues its transformation journey to become more accessible by opening new customer meeting points in cities, we are excited to bring the IKEA experience closer to the Syracuse, NY community.”
The Syracuse Ikea pick-up location is located at 4530 Steelway Blvd South, Liverpool, N.Y. 13090, which is the same address as a Dunk & Bright Distribution Center off Morgan Road. Ikea orders will be available there for pickup Mondays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.; the warehouse is closed on Sundays, according to Ikea’s website.
That would mean a savings for many customers in the region. A delivery of a $299 Ekedalen table would include a $45 shipping cost to Liverpool and a $1,999 Morabo couch would cost $99 to ship to Utica. Otherwise, shoppers would have to drive themselves to an Ikea location; the U.S. store closest to Syracuse is more than 200 miles away in Paramus, New Jersey.
Ikea now has 12 pick-up locations in the U.S., including a new one for the Buffalo area located at 2525 Walden Ave., Cheektowaga,
