Finland can now welcome customers in two new City Stores in the shopping centres Forum and Itis in the capital city of Finland, Helsinki.

Katrine Veggerby, who is Project Manager for City Stores and works in Retail Development, attended the store opening in Finland, as she usually does when a new City Store opens.

We caught up with her on phone to learn more about the City Store openings.

”It is great to participate in the opening. We are busy in the days up to the opening and especially here in Finland as we are opening two new stores on the same day. But the atmosphere is always good and people are very positive,” says Katrine.

The location of the City Stores is important and the two new stores in Finland are both located inside popular shopping centres in Helsinki.

“In the City Stores we can mix and match the products in a way that inspires customers to buy more. We have a smaller assortment in the City Stores and the assortment primarily includes products from our PLUS and GOLD categories and new products,” says Katrine, who is also in charge of selecting products to be displayed in the City Stores.

Reactions from customers

The City Store concept is new in Finland, and we asked Riikka Leskinen, Sales & Marketing Manager in JYSK Finland, who also participated in the opening, to ask some of the first customers what they thought about the store.
