Danish furniture retailer JYSK is to open seven new stores in the first half of 2020 and has revealed it will open 40 new stores across Ireland in the next three to five years.
Last year, JYSK announced that it would open 15 stores across Ireland. However, due to its success in the Irish market, the Danish retailer is now set to open 40 JYSK stores over the next three to five years, with a forecasted turnover of €70m, creating hundreds of new jobs.
The next two stores will open in Waterford (Unit 3/4 Boland’s Retail Park, Cork Road, Waterford) on Thursday, 27 February, and Limerick (Parkway Retail Park, Dublin Road, Limerick) on Thursday, 26 March.
“Our goal is to establish new JYSK locations in towns and cities all over Ireland, so we can contribute to the local economy, especially in smaller communities where our job creation will be extremely valuable”
Following this, JYSK has its sights set on opening stores in Sligo, Carlow and Dublin, plus two stores in Cork city, during summer 2020.
JYSK will create more than 70 full-time jobs with the opening of these new stores.

“The appetite for JYSK in Ireland continues to grow, and we continue to receive a warm welcome and a great response to our offering,” said Roni Tuominen, country manager at JYSK Ireland.
“Our goal is to establish new JYSK locations in towns and cities all over Ireland, so we can contribute to the local economy, especially in smaller communities where our job creation will be extremely valuable. We’re looking forward to bringing JYSK to Waterford and Limerick in early 2020, along with more new locations in the summer.”
