Global furnishing store JYSK opened in Ellesmere Port yesterday (Thursday, August 20).
Matt Bellamy, of Wallasey, has been appointed store manager of the Danish owned business at Westminster Retail Park.
Matt, 40, joins from webuyanycar.com, but has spent time working with Asda, KFC, gaming retailer GAME and Danish-owned store group Netto.
He said: “It’s nice to be working for a Danish company again. I like the company and the culture – and JYSK is a really good company to work for,” said Matt.
“The store is in a great spot, plenty of chimney pots about and lots of footfall. We’re well-placed, with a direct link off the motorway, and there aren’t really any other retailers about with the same range offering. And of course with JYSK there’s always a great offer to be found – I’m really looking forward to opening day.”
When not at work Matt has his hands full as he’s a father of five.
JYSK’s new store, offering a range of garden furniture, beds, mattresses, duvets, sofas, dining table sets, housewares and home textiles at affordable prices, has created 10 new jobs for the town.
Opening celebrations include exclusive and unmissable grand opening weekend offers, with savings of up to 70% off.
