Less than three years after it opened, the IKEA Pick-up and Order Point location in Windsor is closing.

The company says a decision has been made to close its existing Pick-up and Order Point locations in Windsor, London, Kitchener, St. Catharines and Whitby effective January 29, 2020.

It notes, "With urbanization, technology and digitalization, we know our customers' lives are rapidly changing, including the ways they like to shop."

With the closure set for January 29, 2020, the last day for customers to order delivery to the pick-up location is January 15, 2020.

Ikea announced in October 2015 that it was opening up a location on Walker Rd. as part of a 'global test program to learn more about how our customers want to shop with IKEA in new retail formats.'

A ribbon cutting ceremony took place April 4, 2016 in Windsor.

When it opened, it employed 31 people.
