My timing stinks with regard to this post. I had started writing this post on 7/12/2012 after I found the lead but never finished typing it and putting it live.
IKEA™ is looking at a site in the Kansas City metro. Something is cooking on a site on the Kansas side of the state line and it won't be in southern Overland Park or western Wyandotte County. The potential site if the deal goes through will surprise a lot of people.
Anyways, the Business Journal put the story out on 7/20/12.
