NEW JOBS: Danish furniture store moves to Chesterfield


A Danish furniture store is coming to Chesterfield – creating new jobs for the town.

JYSK will open at Markham Retail Park in June.

The global chain offers affordable goods for the bedroom and bathroom as well as general home furnishings.

This includes a range of beds, duvets, sofas and dining table sets.

JYSK country manager Steve Stenhouse said: “Our stores have always had a following with great value for money shoppers, who are looking to add Scandinavian style to their home – perfect for Chesterfield.”

Opening celebrations will include a free Danish breakfast at the store from 9am on Thursday, June 4 alongside a host of exclusive offers.

JYSK is one of the world’s largest furniture retail groups with more than 2,200 stores in 37 countries.

The Danish tradesman Lars Larsen founded JYSK in 1979 with a single store in Aarhus, Denmark.
