Ikea and the Gemini Retail Park in Warrington attract a lot of traffic to the M62. I guess that Ikea is particularly noteworthy as the Warrington store was the first of the furniture giant’s stores in the UK. It opened on 1st October 1987.
An aerial view of Ikea at Junction 8 of the M62. You can see how close the store is to the motorway.
