In a letter to Ms Banerjee, a senior official of the company has promised an investment of Rs 1,000 crore for each store that will open in the state.
Ikea India deputy CEO Patrik Antoni and the company's country expansion manager David McCausland and country public affairs manager have sought appointment with Ms Banerjee in this connection.
"This is big news," Ms Banerjee told reporters at the secretariat.
"The store will be built over 4,00,000 square lakh feet of area. We see West Bengal as a market for 1-2 Ikea stores and touch points, which means investment of more than Rs 2000 cores," it added.
