JYSK to open new Irish stores in Carlow, Cork and Tralee

Danish home retail brand JYSK has enjoyed success since launching in Ireland almost a year ago.

JYSK revealed plans to open three new stores in Ireland in the first half of 2021, bringing the total number of JYSK stores to 12 by June 2021.

New stores will open in May in Carlow and Tralee, with a further 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”

Currently employing 112 people in Ireland, the new store openings will generate 40 jobs locally.

The brand is well known for quality, on-trend interiors products and celebrated for its Scandinavian design ethic.

“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. We are very confident in the Irish market and in our customer’s love for JYSK,” said Roni Tuominen, Country Manager for Ireland and the UK.

“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.”

Since the opening its first Irish store in April 2019, JYSK has successfully opened nine stores across the country in Dublin, Limerick, Cork, Naas, Sligo, Drogheda, Dundalk, Waterford and Portlaoise.

While the JYSK stores remain closed during level 5 restrictions, you can still shop collections online at jysk.ie.
