Red Deer’s JYSK home furnishings retailer has relocated to a larger location at the north end of the city.
JYSK, known for selling Danish-inspired products at affordable prices, has moved to 4960-81 Street in Red Deer.
According to a company release, local residents will be able to experience easier shopping for Scandinavian-style home furnishings and décor in a store with more space and a better layout.
“We’ve been working hard to offer a unique shopping experience,” said district manager Eythor Tryggvason. “This new store offers our customers a great layout with JYSK products set up and displayed as you would like to see them in your own home. “
The release from JYSK Holdings states the new 36,050-square-foot store marks the brand’s commitment to expansion in Canada, providing jobs in the community. JYSK has opened or will open, a total of four new stores in Canada this year in Wetaskiwin, as well as Thunder Bay and St. Thomas, Ont, and in Granby, Que.
In 1996, JYSK opened its first Canadian store in Coquitlam, B.C., and today has 63 stores across the country.
“We are excited to be celebrating 26 years in Canada and bringing Scandinavian influence to the Canadian market,” says Ludvik G. Kristjansson, the company’s CEO.
The international retailer operates over 3,000 stores in 48 countries.
