Crews are working around the clock to make sure the popular retailer IKEA opens on time.
Just more than a month before its official reveal, store manager Amy Jensen gave 13 Action News a sneak peek.
"35 days and counting," said Jensen. "Every morning I count down the days."
As the anticipation builds, crews are busy on the inside prepping displays and piecing together furniture.

"As you can see we're building our product," said Jensen. "A little bit of it is still covered up because there's some dusting and sawing going on but pretty soon we'll be putting everything out on display."

Jensen, who has helped open a number of stores, said after products are assembled, the next phase will be the beautification process.
The store, located near Durango Drive and the 215 Beltway, will open May 18 at 9 a.m.
