We speak to Head of Retail Roni Touminen about JYSK’s ambitious plans to open as many as 40 stores here within the next five years.



JYSK is calling on Irish landlords to get in touch about available retail properties across the country to meet its rapid expansion plans.

The Danish home retail brand, which first opened its doors in Ireland in April of this year, has already successfully launched four stores here.

Earlier this year, it announced plans to open 15 Irish stores over a two year period – but JYSK is expanding its original business plan.

The company is now aiming to open as many as 40 stores within the next five years, forecasting turnover of €70m and creating hundreds of jobs.

JYSK is hosting a special meet and greet event at the Red Cow Moran Hotel on Monday, September 16, and has invited potential landlords from across the country to come along.
