JYSK opens in Stockport

Danish retailer JYSK opened its 23rd UK store today – a brand-new 1200 sqm site in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

Situated on Manchester Road Retail Park, Stockport joins Oldham, Bolton and the recently opened store in Bury to provide JYSK's furniture and homeware goods to the Greater Manchester region.

“We are incredibly excited to bring the JYSK brand to Stockport,” says store manager Mark Armitage. “JYSK’s affordable Scandi-style furniture and homeware, along with its extensive range of sleeping products created by experts, is becoming infamous in the Greater Manchester area – we’re calling it the ‘JYSK fever’! Stockport is also the home of JYSK’s UK headquarters, so this store opening feels even more special. It’s a big moment that signifies how much the JYSK brand has grown.”

The new store also marks the start of a partnership with the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity, to help address the issue of rough sleeping and homelessness across the city region. Using contactless donation points in-store, customers can opt to make a small donation when paying for their JYSK items to pledge support towards the cause. The partnership will run across all four stores in the Greater Manchester region.

JYSK’s sales and marketing manager, UK and Ireland, Jenny Johnston, says: “Everyone deserves the right to a home. As a homeware retailer, we and our customers truly understand and value the gratification and comfort that comes with being able to transform our houses into homes. Enormous headway has been made so far in helping to reduce the numbers of those sleeping rough within the city and its suburbs. We are delighted to be able to support the organisation in its efforts to do more to address the issue and enable more people to transition safely to secure accommodation.”
