Before the Allen keys, there have to be shovels. The Ikea in Merriam has a ceremonial groundbreaking set for Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and Merriam Mayor Ken Sissom will be on hand at 6030 Eby, the future home of the Swedish furniture maker.

Ikea tapped J.E. Dunn earlier this year to build the 359,000-square-foot building set to open in the fall of 2014. And back in January, The Pitch's Ben Palosaari delved into the failure of Merriam Village off Interstate 35 at Johnson Drive, what it took to lure the furniture maker to Kansas and the site's rebirth as an Ikea.
