JYSK opens new store in Westgate Retail Park, Wakefield


Capreon, the Noé Group real estate business, is delighted to announce that JYSK, the international retail chain offering Scandinavian style furniture for homes, has taken a new unit in Westgate Retail Park, Wakefield. The new store will be JYSK’s 19th UK location with Wakefield chosen from a list of over 400 locations.

JYSK will be occupying a 744.70sq m unit, formerly occupied by DW Sports, on a 10-year lease. They join Dreams and One Below in moving to the retail park within the last 12-months.

The new JYSK store offers shoppers the latest trends and Scandinavian design for the home and garden. JYSK have created an inspiring shopping experience, with room set-ups within the furniture departments – so shoppers can get a sneak peek at how the furniture could look in-situ.

The new store joins a strong collection of home retailers including Harvey’s, Bensons for Beds, ScS and Dreams, as well as top retail brands including Curry’s/PC World, Laura Ashley, Mothercare and Pets at Home.

The retail park also offers a selection of food and beverage outlets with Costa Coffee, KFC and Subway.

Carolyn Sparshott, asset manager – Retail at Capreon, said: “We are very pleased to welcome JYSK to Westgate, they are joining a strong mix of homeware retailers and add a distinct offering to shoppers in Wakefield. JYSK’s arrival is the third in 12-months and marks the growing reputation of Westgate from its 50% occupancy a year ago to the thriving retail park it is today.  There are more exciting new retailers to come!”
