    I think Newmarket/Barrie area would also be a possibility for IKEA.

    Yea I think the next spot for one is in Durham. A Pickering location could work well.

    The Vaughan Store is their largest store in the GTA I believe and serves North GTA fairly well.

    East of this, west of that
    I don't think we'll see a store in Barrie - it would be by far the smallest city/CMA population-wise to get a full-size store. Cottage traffic can already easily stop at Vaughan. Newmarket would likely just draw existing customers from the Vaughan and Leslie stores. But who knows. All just guesses.

    IKEA has already announced full-line stores in London and Quebec City. Based on CMA size, not to mention where IKEA has chosen to put Order and Pick-up Outlets, I think the next stores (IMHO) will likely be (in no particular order) Durham Region, Kitchener-Waterloo and Victoria, possibly Niagara and Windsor, maybe Saskatoon. I also suspect some cities with existing stores (Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, etc.) may find themselves with new locations.

    It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    the bayview village one is because they are opening a store at Fairview mall, which is too close to Bayview Village. It makes a lot of sense why they closed, it's really more of a move.

    MUJI's new temporary store opens tomorrow morning at 10am (January 19, 2018) at the opposite end of the Atrium (595 Bay Street at Dundas), in the former Public Guardian and Trustee office.
    The original MUJI store at 20 Dundas West will be renovated to expand into the former Long Tall Sally shop next door, effectively almost doubling their space to 8000+ square feet.
