Spain and Poland open most new stores
To reach 5,000 stores worldwide, JYSK needs to expand to new countries but also open new stores in existing markets. This financial year, no country has opened more stores than Spain and Poland.
top 5 countries in financial year 22/23
1. Spain – 26 new stores
2. Poland – 21 new stores
3. Romania - 11 new stores
4. France - 10 new stores
4. Italy - 10 new stores
With more than 3,300 stores in 48 countries, JYSK is already well represented all around the world. However, expansion is part of the DNA in JYSK, and the goal is set to reach 5,000 stores worldwide.
In the past financial year, JYSK took another great step towards this goal, as a total of 135 new stores were opened. The top performers were Spain with 26 new stores and Poland with 21 new stores.
More stores also mean more jobs, and one of the new openings in Spain was in Xirivella, Valencia, where Camila Gutiérrez Bustamante joined JYSK in July 2023 as Sales Assistant. She has followed the rapid growth of JYSK in Spain and is very happy to be part of the journey.
“It is fantastic to experience the growth that we are having here in Spain. It is exciting to be part of JYSK, where the focus is so clear on growth and creating new jobs,” says Camila.
Executive Vice President Retail Mikael Nielsen would like to praise the work that is being done in all JYSK countries to continue to open new stores.
“We are always searching for locations to open new stores – also in countries where we already have a well-developed store network. In some countries, we still see great potential for new stores. Some of these countries are Spain and Poland, and it is really great work to open that many stores in just one year,” says Mikael.
While there is potential in many existing markets, new country openings will also be needed to reach the goal of 5,000 stores. This year, JYSK stepped into Türkiye, a market with huge potential.
“We are constantly working on where to open JYSK stores next. In the meantime, we will continue to expand in our existing markets, and I am excited to see which country will open most new stores in the new financial year,” says Mikael.
