Homewares retailer chooses Liverpool for its largest UK store

Danish retailer JYSK is to open its largest UK store in Liverpool next month.

The home furnishings shop will open its doors at Hunts Cross Retail Park in less than three weeks’ time.

JYSK has another six store launches planned in the UK by the end of the financial year, which will increase its UK portfolio to 26. It has nearly 2,600 stores in 50 countries around the world

“The sky really is the limit for JYSK and we remain committed to our expansion plans even in the current climate,” says Jenny Johnston, JYSK’s UK sales and marketing manager.

The retailer hopes its 14,500 sq ft store can take advantage of a trend it sees in people currently investing more in their homes because of the restrictions on going out or on holiday.

Johnston added: “Liverpool remains an ever-popular choice as a shopping destination. That coupled with the scale of the city and its inhabitants means it is an exciting opportunity for us.

“Crucially, we have ensured, just like with all our stores, that it is a safe and enjoyable place to shop under the current COVID-19 circumstances.”
