A visit to the new IKEA store South of Seattle in Renton

The new IKEA store opened in Renton (about 20 minutes South of Seattle) in February of 2017, and it was a welcome change to the smaller cramped store that's been next door the last 15 years. More numerous and sophisticated displays, beautiful restaurant and somehow, more inventory. It's beautiful!
Download the improved IKEA Shopping App available now for free in the Apple App Store and at Google Play! It's an easy way to prepare for your trip. And IKEA Renton offers free Wi-Fi. Visit the store and log on. It's simple, simply search for the "IKEA WIFI" network on your Wi-Fi enabled device when you enter the store. Launch your browser and follow the on-screen instructions. You'll be able to log on that first time and automatically select and connect every time you visit.

IKEA Renton wants to play a part in creating a better life for the people and the communities touched by their business.

IKEA Renton has helped plant 5,000 trees in the Mt. Adams Post-Fire Restoration Project in partnership with American Forests. American Forests is working with the U.S. Forest Service to plant 23,600 mixed conifer seedlings across 236 acres that were severely burned in wildfires in 2008, 2012, and 2015. The plantings will provide important watershed protection and critical habitat for the northern spotted owl.
