The home furnishings giant, which has a location in West Chester Twp. between Dayton and Cincinnati, is stopped publication of its annual catalog after 70 years, citing the increased shift to online browsing and shopping.
IKEA opened its West Chester Twp. store in March 2008.
When it opened on 28 acres of a 56-acre parcel along Interstate 75 at the southeastern corner of Allen and Muhlhauser roads, IKEA West Chester was the first and only Ohio store. New locations debuted 114 miles away in Columbus in June 2017 and 122 miles away near Indianapolis in October 2017.
