The Danish home retail brand Jysk is to open three new stores in Ireland this summer.

It comes after the firm - considered a competitor to Ikea, but with smaller stores - opened its first Irish store in Naas earlier this year.

Its second Irish outlet will open in Drogheda on July 4th, followed by a store in Navan three weeks later on July 25th.

On August 8th, they will open a store in Portlaoise.

The three new openings are set to create up to 50 jobs.

Jysk's head of retail Roni Tuominen said: "When we made the decision to bring our brand to Ireland, we knew that we wanted to expand quickly across the country and develop a robust employment strategy."

The company also says it is hoping to expand its head office in Dublin, as part of plans to open 15 stores here over the next two years.

The firm currently has more than 2,700 stores worldwide.
