JYSK Romania, Danish retailer of furniture and decoration, announced the opening of a new store in Romania, in Sfantu Georghe, Covasna.
With a total space of over 1,200 square meters, it will be the 25th store in the country, opening on August 13 at the intersection of 7 Banki Donath Street and 3 Tavaszi Sandor Street.
“We intend to open 100 stores in Romania in the medium term. Now, with the opening of JYSK Sfantu Gheorghe, we reach 25 stores, which means that we covered a quarter of the way. We chose to expand in St. George after having received many signals from consumers here, who wanted us to be closer. In addition, we have found here a very good space from all points of view and a convenient location close to the centre, which means that the store will be accessible to all customers, regardless of where they live,” said Iraida Paiuc, marketing manager of JYSK Romania.
