DANISH HOME RETAILER JYSK ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR IRISH DISTRIBUTION CENTRE

21.04.2024

Danish furniture and home furnishings brand, JYSK, today announces plans to establish a 50,000m2 distribution centre in Ireland. JYSK is calling for commercial property owners in and around the Dublin area with sufficient available space to contact the *Projects and Investment team at JYSK about this new opportunity. JYSK aims to have the new logistics warehouse operational by the second half of 2024.

The new distribution centre will provide better service and shorter delivery lead times, as well as more efficient stock management to JYSK’s rapidly increasing customer numbers both online and in-store across the UK and Ireland. JYSK will make a significant investment in the new distribution centre to facilitate its 21 Irish stores and 30 UK stores, as well as supporting the brand’s ambitious expansion plans for Ireland and the UK over the next five years.

Last month, JYSK opened its 21st store in Ireland in Beacon South Quarter, the hub for leading interiors brands in south county Dublin. The first JYSK store opened in Naas in 2019, and since then, JYSK has gone on to open 20 stores in towns and cities across the country from Letterkenny to Youghal. JYSK continues its commitment to bringing new stores to Ireland, with plans to open another 10 by the end of 2024. JYSK currently employs 256 people in Ireland, and the company recently announced a recruitment drive to fulfil 100 new jobs at the company in the next year.

Country Director for JYSK UK and Ireland, Roni Tuominen, said: “As our store footprint and customer base across Ireland and the UK continues to grow, now is the right time for us to develop a state-of-the-art logistics warehouse in Ireland to service this market and the UK. The new warehouse will enable us to better serve our customers in terms of delivery lead times and stock management, as well as being able to increase the online assortment of product, especially mattresses in the sleep category. Stock will be delivered directly to the new distribution centre in Ireland, rather than via Denmark, reducing our carbon footprint in the process.”

JYSK (pronounced YOOSK) is one of the UK and Ireland’s go to destinations for high quality, on trend products for the home and garden. The brand has earned a worldwide reputation for expertise and knowledge in sleeping culture and specialises in sleeping products created by experts, from mattresses, duvets, and pillows to bedframes and bases. JYSK’s Scandinavian design ethic and stylish approach to interiors has made the brand known and loved across the world.
