Located directly across the street from the Mall of America, IKEA Bloomington knew its new store would have to be able to accommodate the large crowds expected at the landmark shopping area. Pepper delivered, continuing a relationship with IKEA that began in 1996. The 330,000-square-foot elevated store with parking below contains two floors of retail space. Inside the store, the first floor contains a warehouse, market hall, bistro and checkout areas, and the second floor houses a showroom, 380-seat restaurant with full kitchen and an administration area. Anticipating large crowds, Pepper attached an additional single-level parking dock to the structure, ensuring the store would be able to accommodate all customers.
