In his speech to the customers that queued up to get hold of the great offers, the ambassador expressed his joy to find “a small piece of Denmark in Greece” and wished all the best for the new store.

“JYSK’s investment in Greece is a good thing both for Greece and for Denmark, and it proves JYSK’s trust in the Greek economy,” he said.

Along with customers, the ambassador had the opportunity to stroll inside the store, and he expressed his admiration for the interior and the layout of the new store.
