IKEA locations.) “Because of this store’s success, we are excited about the opportunity to build upon our established presence in Burbank with a new, roomier store so close to the existing one, and in the same city,” said IKEA U. Other family-friendly features include a ‘Children’s IKEA’ area in the showroom, baby-care rooms, preferred parking and play areas throughout the store.IKEA now also offers a product picking and delivery service, and an IKEA Family loyalty program.
