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!”
