JYSK opens first store in Russia
Furniture retailer JYSK is to open its first store in Russia today.
The shop in Moscow’s Trojka district will be followed by three further openings across the capital city during the summer.
Mikael Nielsen, executive vice president of retail at JYSK, said: “I am really happy that we are now able to open our first store in Russia. The opening was originally planned for 2 April, but this was not possible due to the restrictions caused by coronavirus. Unfortunately, the ongoing threat of the virus also means that the country opening will take place without the kind of celebrations we normally associate with a country opening. That will have to wait until current restrictions are lifted, and then we will of course celebrate with our Russian customers.”
The Danish company opened its first store in 1979 and now has more than 2,900 shops and 23,000 employees in 52 countries. Owned by the family behind Lars Larsen Group, JYSK has an annual turnover of €3.794 billion.
