Many who have expressed a desire for an Ikea store may get their wish.
Plans filed for massive retail center in Orange County - Triangle Business Journal:

Developers have filed to build a 128-acre retail center at the corner of Interstates 40 and 85 in rural Orange County.

The development would be only slightly smaller than The Streets at Southpoint mall in Durham and the Triangle Town Center mall in Raleigh.

What this area REALLY needs is a Container Store. Now THAT would be great! We've got so many Walmarts, Targets, etc.

i cant wait for this to open. actually there is already a super walmart in the area, so i doubt they would open another one. i am hoping it will be an ikea!
anyway we need some shopping around here so a mall would be so great, lots of jobs and things to do.

I think there's a 99.9% chance that it will not be an Ikea. The company considered a location in the Triangle for their North Carolina store, but decided to build in Charlotte instead.

So they're going to feature just one, singluar anchor store? That sounds a little odd. Can anyone think of a large store that would fit that description? Other than furniture stores, all I can think of is Bass Pro Shops.

Interesting. I find it odd that they say:
" would include a large anchor retailer. On the wish list are stores including outdoors shop Cabela's and furniture retailer Ikea." But they also state that they are dismayed over loosing tax revenue to Durham because of Southpoint. Southpoint does not have any store like Cabelas or Ikea so I guess they plan on other mall type stores to tempt shoppers away from Southpoint. Southpoint still has the only Nordstorms in the area so that will always be a draw for some.
