CALGARY, AB – OCTOBER 25, 2020 – Danish home retailer JYSK is opening its Calgary flagship store, the first in a series of future investments in the Alberta market.
Located near Sunridge Mall in the city’s northeast quadrant, the global retailer’s new, 36,726 sq. ft. space will feature a large selection of JYSK’s accessible and stylish Scandinavian home décor and furnishings.
While retail expansion might seem like a bold move during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the store opening comes at a time when more Canadians than ever are working and spending their leisure time at home.
Explains Eythor Tryggvason, JYSK’s Alberta District Manager: “Now, more than ever, Canadians are recognizing the importance of investing in the places where they live. Our new Sunridge location will provide Calgary residents with great offers for their homes and an in-store shopping experience that’s safe, clean, and distinctly Scandinavian.”
According to Tryggvason, the Sunridge location is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to investing in Alberta. As part of JYSK’s expansion strategy, further investments in the province – and more store openings – are being planned.
“As a Calgarian, it’s a great feeling to be able to open a new store and provide jobs during difficult times,” says Tryggvason. “Growth is a key part of JYSK’s DNA globally, and we truly believe that the sky’s the limit for our company in Canada, especially in Alberta. This is just the first step in our growth plan for Alberta and we remain committed to investing in the province for years to come.”
The grand opening of the JYSK Sunridge location will take place on Tuesday, October 27th, 2020, with COVID-19 measures in place for the health and safety of customers.
