Its new click and collect service is a focus for JYSK in the UK as sales worldwide jumped 10 per cent to €2.8bn in the year to end August.


2013–14 sales have climbed as the retail giant — headquartered in Denmark and part of the Lars Larsen group — opened another 100 stores across the world to take its portfolio to 2,200 worldwide.


Operating profits climbed by 25 per cent to €396.5m, the retailer said.


Numbers for JYSK’s dedicated British arm will likely show a big leap thanks to the launch of a UK ecommerce site late last year, the opening of new stores to take its total to 11, and the recent launch of click and collect services.


UK country manager Steve Stenhouse said: “There is no greater sign of confidence in a brand than a click and collect sale from a customer. We aim to continue our promising start.”


JYSK has invested over £6m into its UK business in just over a year with total investment reaching close to £20m.

Lars Larsen group also owns the furniture chains IDEmøbler and ILVA and the Bolia.com business.
