The first jubilarian to celebrate 40 years in JYSK was celebrated on 2 May in Denmark. Jéan Brøns was employed as employee number three by JYSK founder Lars Larsen in 1979. 40 years later, Jéan is still happy to be part of the JYSK journey.
2 April 2019 it is 40 years since the first JYSK store opened in Aarhus. Since then expansion has been a cornerstone in JYSK, and therefore the anniversary is celebrated with the opening of the company’s first store in Ireland.
The family owning Lars Larsen Group has after careful consideration decided to merge JYSK Nordic, which operates 1,287 stores in 20 countries, and Dänisches Bettenlager, which operates 1,283 stores in 7 countries, into one business unit.
