Employees will clean the store during the closure.
Ikea's Jacksonville location is closed until further notice, according to its website.
The store, at 7801 Gate Parkway, closed at 5 p.m. March 16.
A statement from Ikea U.S. President Javier Quiñones said customers can still order from IKEA.com.
Employees will clean and sanitize the store during the closure and will continue receiving pay and benefits.
“At IKEA, we often use the Swedish word 'kraftsamla' meaning 'let’s come together.' Today, the spirit of kraftsamla is being tested as we have taken the communal responsibility to prevent and contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19),” Quiñones said in a statement.
