JYSK reopens for in-store customers

Date published: 26 May 2020

JYSK re-opened its Oldham store for in-store customers from yesterday (Monday).

The store was already operating Store Collection of Online Orders and Click and Collects with a bespoke-designed social distancing customer service.

JYSK Country Manager David Ashton said that, in common with other re-opening JYSK stores, Oldham customers arriving at the Alexandra Retail Park store could expect to find fully covid-secure and compliant measures in place.

He said: “Whilst our store teams were already working in the background to prepare our stores for a successful and compliant reopening, we re-introduced our Click and Collect services and quickly hit the first 1,000 orders across the UK – with unprecedented demand.

"It is vital as a retailer and employer that we ensure our teams and customers feel they can trust us [JYSK] to still be able provide a great shopping experience whilst looking after their best interests, because all the signs show us that our customers are missing JYSK.

“We will be opening in a phased approach because it allows for successful execution – and to put it simply, get it right for our employees and customers.

“It has been a challenging time for all retailers in the UK and across the world, so we really look forward to welcoming back regular, and new customers over the coming days, weeks and months.

"So I say, welcome back to JYSK, even if it is from a little further away than before.”
