Danish-owned global furniture brand Jysk will be moving from its current location at St Marks Shopping Centre in May.

Jysk will open a new purpose-built store on Deacon Road close to the Carlton Centre on May 4.

Its current store at St Marks will close on April 14 ahead of the new opening.

It has been confirmed that all of the Lincoln store’s staff will also re-locate to the new store.

The move comes follows St Marks Shopping Centre’s £150 million redevelopment plans.

Country Manager for JYSK David Ashton said: “As soon as we became aware that our existing Lincoln location was up for redevelopment we set ourselves on a mission to find a new one – for us leaving this city was simply not an option.

“We are delighted to be opening at a new purpose built site on Deacon Road, near to the Carlton Centre and brand new Lidl – opportunities to take advantage of a great city-central retail location are rare for Lincoln.

“Our current store we will close on April 14, after our Green Weekend of special garden offers, then our new Lincoln JYSK will open on May 4.

“It is a fresh start for JYSK in the city, and we will completely update the look and feel of the store.”

Lincoln’s new JYSK will be a “Concept 3.0” store, will offer “room set inspirations and aspirational product groupings”. Products are arranged by colour as well as type.
