Jysk planning to increase number of stores in Ireland to 40

Jysk is scheduling next month an open day and inviting landlords as it aims to increase the number of stores it plans to open here from 15 to 40.

The decision came after the strong performance of Jysk’s first Irish store, in Naas, Co Kildare which sparked the the chain to increase the number of outlets it intends to open in the Republic by 2021, giving it a forecasted turnover here of €70 million a year .

Poul Erik Larsen , expansion director said : “We have noted that in other parts of Europe we can issue and sign a lease contract within two to four weeks, whereas in Ireland this is taking up to 16 weeks in some cases,”  .

Roni Tuominen, head of retail at Jysk Ireland, said: “The appetite for Jysk’s offering is there amongst Irish consumers, and we have seen this in our revision of forecasted figures for 2019, which have been increased by almost 50 per cent.”.
