IKEA will open its first store in Colorado this summer with a Denver area location in Centennial, Colo. The grand opening is set for July 27, much earlier than originally planned due to the fast pace of construction and “timely reviews by local authorities,” according to the home furnishings retailer.

The 415,000 sq. ft. store is being built on 13.5 acres. In addition to solar panels on the roof, the Denver location will be IKEA’s first store to integrate a geothermal component as part of its heating/cooling system.
