At least 40 new jobs will be created at Cork’s new JYSK store.
The Danish furniture and homeware brand has announced plans to open three new locations in Ireland in the first half of 2021, with a second store opening in Cork at Eastgate Retail Park in Little Island in June.
“We have always been committed to expanding in Ireland and we are reaching our target to open 15 new stores in our first two years here,” said Roni Tuominen, Country Manager for Ireland and the UK.
“We are very confident in the Irish market and in our customer’s love for JYSK. There is a great appetite for home furnishing products, perhaps now more than ever, with so many of us spending more and more time at home. We are delighted to bring JYSK to Carlow, Tralee and Eastgate Retail Park in Cork, and we look forward to welcoming and meeting new customers in our new locations this year.”
The first JYSK (pronounced YOOSK) store opened in Youghal in 2019. Despite a challenging year in 2020, total sales in JYSK UK & Ireland reached €41M, an increase of 74%.
