JYSK to continue Northern push

JYSK is to open five more stores by the end of August 2021, creating 100 jobs and taking the number of UK stores to 26.

The branches will open in Bury, Stockport, Leeds, Barnsley and Gainsborough.

‘We are delighted to be able to bring JYSK to five new locations across the UK. The sky is the limit for JYSK, and we remain committed to our expansion plans even in the current climate. All the new stores to open will be within a one-hour drive of existing stores to allow for synergies in processes and shared resources, this approach will allow for sustainable controlled expansion of the UK portfolio,’ says Jenny Johnston, JYSK UK & Ireland sales and marketing manager.

‘Our sales during the multiple lockdowns showed that many people are choosing to invest in their homes this year rather than spending money on going out or on holiday. With the difficulties of the pandemic continuing, people are creating their perfect home environments which they can feel safe and comfortable in and JYSK are happy to be able to assist with that. In 2021 we think that the pandemic will change that way that people work, we see flexible working and people continuing to work from home as something that will be in place long after the pandemic, therefore we don’t see the trend for home improvements declining any time soon,’ says Roni Tuominen, JYSK UK & Ireland country manager.
