Danish furniture retailer JYSK has revealed plans to open a new store in Ireland while also expanding one of its UK premises.
According to planning documents submitted to Kilkenny County Council, JYSK has applied for permission to implement alterations at a retail unit at the Kilkenny Retail and Business Park in Springhill, Kilkenny City.
As part of the plans, this includes the construction of a new first floor mezzanine retail space, as well as internal improvements. The council is currently reviewing the application, which is expected to be decided by 19 January 2023.
Furthermore, JYSK has submitted plans to add a new mezzanine floor into its base at its Portland Retail Park outlet in Mansfield.
The application, submitted to Mansfield Council, states that it intends to create an extra level within the store, while also increasing the warehouse space.
A statement in the application said: “The purpose is to meet the operational requirements of JYSK. The proposal has not been disaggregated as the display area and staff quarters are all integral components of the proposed use.”
