JYSK Swadlincote, The Pipeworks, DE11 9AA
JYSK is a Danish-based international retail chain that sells 'everything for the home'.
Selling bedroom, bathroom, office, living and dining room furniture, storage furniture, curtains and blinds, garden items and homeware.
The word 'JYSK' has always been intentionally included in the company name. In Danish 'JYSK' designates anything or - like founder Lars Larsen - anybody from the Jutland Peninsula, and it is often associated with modesty, thoroughness and honesty - three values that Larsen himself has always identified with. JYSK stands for trustworthiness, and a deal is always a deal.
‘Like expensive brands, just not expensive.'
Review by Nisbah Hussain, Mumsnet Blackburn Local Editor, as part of our Black Friday advertising promotion with JYSK. All opinions are Nisbah's own.
As we fast approach Black Friday, multi-national corporations are gearing up to attract consumers seeking a fabulous bargain or two. Amongst them is the reputable furnishings company, JYSK. The Danish furnishings store has a strong presence throughout the globe with over 4,100 stores and will be providing some mouth-watering (or the furnishing equivalent) bargains in their Black Friday weekend sale! From the adverts that we have seen, the Black Friday event (28th – 30th November) should be high on the list of anyone looking to grab a few home furnishing bargains!
In the UK, JYSK has 11 stores and for those of you who don't know much about the company, JYSK is definitely in keeping with the Scandinavian ideology of fantastic value whilst still stocking quality and trendy furnishing choices. The store stocks everything for your home, from beds and bedding, curtains and finishing touches, dining, office and sitting room furniture, to accessories for the bathroom and kitchen. The store strives to be competitively priced and with the impending sale will provide shoppers with a lot of bang for their buck!
I have visited the Blackburn store on many occasions and have always enjoyed the store experience. The store is located in one of the retail parks near the centre of town and its location is a big plus. With a number of free parking places, close to the store entrance, it's great for putting all the shopping (and children) away quickly and easily.
I must admit here that I am a little bit of home store addict. However, often I find the stores too claustrophobic with too many items laid out that shoppers cannot enjoy the shopping experience. Or on the flipside, the bigger home furnishing stores often replicate the size of a small town and results in trying to find the area or items that becoming a military operation and more often not then not you are stressed and tired by the time you finally get to the right area! This is where I have always enjoyed the experience in JYSK; the store is bright, plain white walls and feels airy. They have just the right amount of products on the shop floor, which allows people to test, physically see the items and examine the products without it becoming too full on. One aspect that I like is that there is always plentiful room to manoeuvre the pushchair (that is a necessity in a store nowadays).
In the Blackburn store, I have always found there to be plentiful staff on hand to provide assistance and advice whenever it is required. One thing I hate doing is having to wait around for a member of staff to come and assist you, even worse is trying to find a member of staff. On every visit, including my most recent this week, there were always staff out in each department eager to help!
With the ever increasing cost of consumer products, trying to buy quality items at low prices is becoming something that all families strive for. Having a local store like JYSK has been fabulous. There are some fantastic offers on offer during the Black Friday event and below I have listed some of the bargains that you will find:
- The solid, oiled oak VEMB nest of tables at 70% off (£23.99 instead of £79.99)
- The traditional RAMTEN daybed set, a white iron-framed single daybed with a stowaway single underneath that can be used separately or to form a double, at 35% off, (just £249.99).
- The comfy three-seater GEDSER sofa with chaise longue. Durable covers and shape-retaining foam cushions make it a great choice for the whole family and, better still, save £200 during JYSK's BLACK FRIDAY, and it's yours for £249.99 (normally £449.99).
With the impending festive season, a visit to your local JYSK store is a must to prepare your home for the full Christmas experience. JYSK has 11 stores at Lincoln, Mansfield, York, Blackburn, Bolton, Swadlincote, Coventry, Pontefract, Bournemouth, Grantham and Rotherham. This event is not to be missed and we would love to hear what bargains you found!
