White Spot eyes location on old IKEA site
Pirate Paks are replacing Billy bookcases on Sweden Way.
White Spot has leased one of two spaces in a new building planned for a portion of IKEA's old site at 3200 Sweden Way, which fronts Bridgeport Road.
According to a Colliers International listing, the restaurant chain has leased a location at 3200 Sweden Way, and an adjacent 3,600-square-foot space is still available for retail lease.
A development permit application for the restaurant is under review at Richmond City Hall.
White Spot, founded 86 years ago, is headquartered in Vancouver. The restaurant chain has 128 White Spot and Triple O's locations throughout B.C., Alberta and Asia.
IKEA moved to a new location on Jacombs Road in 2012, and its former location was demolished.
