Global Scandinavian-owned furniture brand JYSK will open in Wakefield next month, creating 10 new jobs.
The €3.58 billion group, which has more than 2,800 stores worldwide across more than 50 countries, will make Wakefield home to its 19th store as it advances through a rapid five-year expansion that will take UK store numbers to 52.
The store, part of a group known for its Scandinavian sleeping and living expertise, will open on Saturday 3rd August at 9am at Westgate Retail Park, WF2 9SD, after an invitation-only preview event for Wakefield VIPs the previous evening.
Wakefield, which was hand-picked from more than 400 locations, will also have one of the group’s largest stores capable of showcasing the full JYSK sleeping and living ranges and everything for your home.
Wakefield’s store follows record-breaking openings for JYSK’s relocated Lincoln and new St Helens stores and a strong first few days trading at JYSK Bradford which opened on 29th June to queues eager to take advantage of Grand Opening offers of up to 70% off.
JYSK uses its powerful global purchasing power to offer lower prices to customers without compromise and its style and quality are striking the right note with UK shoppers.
As the store opens its doors Wakefield can expect incredible Grand Opening Day offers, a FREE Danish breakfast, FREE ice cream, the chance to win a sofa/indoor lounge set and more. For customers outside the store before the ribbon is cut to formally open for trading, there’s a ‘balloon bonus’ – balloons offering a further 10% off (cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer) will be handed out to the first 25 in the queue.
All new and relocated stores are concept 3.0 format, which offers a stylish and contemporary shopping experience with room settings and displays to inspire and excite, backed with great prices and quality.
