Mississauga, March 25 (CINEWS): IKEA this week opened its humungous 397,000-square-foot distribution centre on Argentia Road near the Lisgar GO station. Although this facility has been in operation since October and employs 115, they are urgently looking to hire another 85 to fill positions.
The company is looking to hire for human resources, operations, warehouse management and logistics positions. More details can be found by visiting ikea.ca/careers.
At this facility, staff will pick and ship customer orders that come in from the four existing IKEA locations in the GTA, as well as from online purchases. The facility, just the second distribution centre the company has in Canada.
There are many people under the impression that this facility is another IKEA store and many have actually driven here thinking they can shop, but the company wants to stress that this facility is strictly a hub for the products IKEA stocks and isn’t a place to shop, visit or even pickup orders.
IKEA is in a major expansion mode. It currently operates 12 stpres across the country and that number is expected to double by 2025.
At an event Stefan Sjöstrand, President of IKEA Canada, said that “It is an exciting time for IKEA in Canada as we become even closer to our customers than ever before, today’s grand opening is the first step in truly transforming IKEA into a true multi-functional retailer.”
Speaking further about Mississauga’s economic competitiveness, Mayor Crombie highlighted how “in 2015, the City of Mississauga issued building permits for $1.3 billion in construction. This is a 10 per cent increase over last year.”
“Our numbers were driven by a strong mix of commercial, industrial and residential building. Commercial and industrial activity accounted for more than $608 million and residential was at $563 million.”
“Put simply, we are a City in demand for investment, expansion and opportunity,” Mayor Crombie added.
“IKEA is proof Mississauga’s economy is strong. We have become a net importer of jobs – more people come to work in Mississauga daily than leave.”
