JYSK set to reopen stores.

He said: “Whilst our store teams were already working in the background to prepare our stores for a successful and compliant reopening, we re-introduced our Click & Collect services and quickly hit the first 1,000 orders across the UK – with unprecedented demand. It is vital as a retailer and employer that we ensure our teams and customers feel they can trust us [JYSK] to still be able provide a great shopping experience whilst looking after their best interests, because all the signs show us that our customers are missing JYSK.

“We will be opening in a phased approach because it allows for successful execution – and to put it simply, get it right for our employees and customers.

“It has been a challenging time for all retailers in the UK and across the world, so we really look forward to welcoming back regular, and new customers over the coming days, weeks and months. So I say, Welcome Back to JYSK, even if it is from a little further away than before.”

He added: “All stores will be safely opened for in-store customers by mid-next week.

All of the stores scheduled to welcome customers in-store are already operating Store Collection of Online Orders and Click & Collects with a bespoke-designed social distancing customer service.

The news came as JYSK revealed another new store opening – at Liverpool’s Hunts Cross Retail Park - later this year – and a fresh three-year contract with Paralympian champion and SAS Who Dares Wins competitor Lauren Steadman.
