West Sacramento is likely to see another major name build a store next to its new IKEA and Wal-Mart.

Home Depot won’t officially comment, but the company’s name appears on the site plans for the new Riverpoint Center in West Sacramento. Others close to the project say Home Depot officials are very much in negotiations with the developers. The company has a dozen stores in the Sacramento region. Ikea should soon begin construction on their home furnishings store, targeted to open next autumn. The Swedish company’s store in Emeryville draws heavily from the Sacramento region … so its location in West Sacramento has appeal to other retailers who’ll want to be near that store traffic. Wal-Mart is in escrow to secure their site land at Riverpoint. Just a few years ago, West Sacramento wasn’t seeing major retailers come to the city … but it’s been on a growth track that includes thousands of new homes.
