According to the most recent September 2014 statistics, at least 9.3 percent of Memphis-area residents are unemployed. Ask many of those people why they fall in that category and a frequent answer will be, “There are no jobs out there.”

But the truth is there ARE jobs out there; however, a great number of the Memphis labor force lacks the skills to fill them. In 2013, nearly 18,000 jobs in the Greater Memphis Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) went unfilled. According to the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit think tank in Washington, D.C., MSA ranks 86 out of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas on the Skills Gap index, meaning, despite the city’s large labor pool, employers here are struggling to find qualified workers at all skill levels to fill their open positions.

Plans for the world’s largest furniture maker to build a $64.3 million store in Memphis is just about the best news anyone in the Bluff City could hear. Except that IKEA isn’t the only big fish to come to this pond. It’s almost as if suddenly the Memphis area is a magnet for retail. Bass Pro, another destination retailer like IKEA, will finish its long awaited refurbishing of the Pyramid this spring, and Swedish “fast fashion” retailer H&M announced recently the opening of a store at The Shops at Carriage Crossing.
