JYSK outlines plans for Ireland DC

JYSK has announced plans to establish a 50,000 sqm distribution centre in Ireland.

The retailer is calling for commercial property owners in and around the Dublin area with sufficient available space to contact its projects and investment team about this new opportunity, and aims to have the new logistics warehouse operational by the second half of 2024. 

JYSK says the new DC will provide better service and shorter delivery lead times, as well as more efficient stock management.

JYSK plans to make a significant investment in the DC to facilitate its 21 Irish stores and 30 UK stores, as well as supporting the brand’s expansion plans over the next five years. 

Last month, JYSK opened its 21st store in Ireland, in Beacon South Quarter, a hub for interiors brands. 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 plans to open another 10 in Ireland by the end of 2024. It currently employs 256 people there, and the company recently announced a recruitment drive to fulfil 100 new jobs in the next year. 

Country director for JYSK UK and Ireland, Roni Tuominen (pictured), says: “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.”
