FISHERS, Ind. -- As we get closer and closer to the fall opening of the new IKEA in Fishers, Indiana, representatives announced some new details about what will be inside the 300,000 square-foot furniture store. 

Different from most IKEAs in the country, the Fishers IKEA will be just one floor. 

"It's much easier for the shopping carts to go back and forth," said Joseph Roth, an IKEA spokesperson.

The 450-seat restaurant, featuring the famous meatballs, will be between the showroom and the marketplace. There will be three different types of meatballs -- traditional, chicken and vegetable.

Before it opens, a lot of the work will be done inside, like plumbing, electrical and carpeting.
