Cityland Group – the developer of Cityland Mall, UAE’s first nature-inspired mall scheduled for launch in 2018 – have signed up with Danish home furnishing retailer JYSK to bring the brand to the Middle East. With more than 2,500 stores worldwide across 48 countries, JYSK is one of the world’s largest retail furniture groups.
With a passion for Scandinavian design, JYSK delivers furniture and accessories, including mattresses, bedding and outdoor products that enhance living spaces with a sense of sophistication at affordable prices. The 14,400 sqft store will enable UAE consumers to experience JYSK’s product designs in a welcoming atmosphere.
“We are delighted to announce our entry into the Middle East,” says Jens Nordahl Ravnbol, JYSK franchise partner in the UAE. “We are excited to open a flagship store at Cityland Mall, which is all set to be an iconic retail destination in the UAE. As home to a very cosmopolitan and sophisticated consumer base, the UAE is definitely an exciting retail market. We look forward to bringing our wide range of designs and products and aim to become the destination of choice for savvy customers who are looking to spruce up their indoor and outdoor living spaces, irrespective of their taste and budget.”
“We are pleased to welcome a renowned brand like JYSK, introducing it to Middle East consumers through the Dubai flagship store at Cityland Mall. As part of our retail strategy, we want to consciously bring in novel retail concepts and delight our customers; the presence of JYSK in our mall is proof of that endeavour,” adds Fahimuddin Sharfuddin, CEO and board member, Cityland Group.
Cityland Mall will be the only mega shopping destination to be unveiled in 2018 and is poised to become a key attraction for both residents and visitors. It will feature over 350 retail outlets, unique dining options, a variety of entertainment offerings and an expansive ‘Central Park’ – a 200,000 sqft botanical garden that will form the nucleus of the single-storey circular-shaped mall.
