Danish furniture giant JYSK has announced the location of their second Cork store
A second JYSK store will open in Cork in October.
The Danish furniture retailer will launch its new outlet at Eastgate, Little Island, creating 15 new jobs on Leeside as part of the rollout of six new Irish stores by the end of 2021.
The opening of the new stores sees an investment of €7m by the brand and the creation of up to 90 new jobs, contributing an estimated €43m to the local economies over the next 10 years.
“When we launched JYSK in Ireland, we announced that we would open 15 new stores in the first two years.” said Roni Tuominen, Country Manager for JYSK UK and Ireland.
“The pandemic hampered our plans a little, but we are back on track and look forward to opening six stores by the end of 2021 to bring our total in Ireland to 15. We have ambitious plans for JYSK in Ireland in the coming years.”
The first Cork JYSK store opened in Youghal in 2019.
