TORONTO - Ikea Canada aims to be the place to shop for drivers of battery-powered vehicles.

The home furnishings retailer says it is installing charging stations for electric vehicles at all 12 of its stores across Canada.

The company says it is partnering on the project with Sun Country Highway to install two 60-amp charging stations at each location.

Ikea Canada says the rollout is set to be completed by late August.

Charging will be available at no cost to customers on a first-come, first-served basis.

Ikea Canada president Stefan Sjostrand says the project reinforces the company's commitment to sustainability.
