The Ikea will provide for 9000 direct and indirect jobs in the city.

The Ikea is estimated to bring around 5 million customers each year to Alicante. So this would definitely be a major boost for the entire region.  The Job opening will be directed at mostly people from Alicante. So that  is more environmentally friendly. The employees will drive easily to their nearby work each day. Till now all this is just a rumor.

The Ikea in Alicante will be closer for most people than the newly build Ikea in Valencia  or the on in Murcia.

The commercial site will also include an  120 000 square metres for restaurants, offices and commercial buildings.

Other planning ?

Unfortunately some false rumours have surfaced of the Ikea being built across La Zenia Boulevard Shopping Centre in Orihuela Costa. Although this would have been a great place to build an Ikea.

In Alicante it can simply attract more tourist from the North side of Costa Brava like Benidorm and Calpe. So people from Orihuela Costa will have to choose either drive 30 minutes to the Shopping Centres in Murcia and visit the Ikea there. Or go to Alicante which takes you around 45 Minutes.

For the Moment people can visit the Ikea in Valencia or the Ikea in Murcia.
