IKEA about to submit new planning application for a smaller store at Calcot, near Theale

I received a letter this morning saying that IKEA are about to put in a new planning application for their site in Pincents Lane, Calcot:

IKEA announced in August that they were now intending to build a smaller, two-storey, store rather than the three-storey store that they got planning permission for in 2012.

On the face of it, reducing the height should reduce its visual impact on Theale. What is not clear however, is whether IKEA expect fewer customer visits to the store. If there will be fewer customers, it should mean less traffic of course.
