By Retail SEE Group / May 13, 2019

JYSK, one of the world’s leading furniture and home decor retailers, will open its new store in Arena Park, a new retail park built next to Arena Centar in Zagreb, Croatia, on the 16th of May.

The new store is designed according to JYSK’s ‘Store 3.0’ retail concept which provides more space for both decoration and inspiration.

The store will open on the day of the grand opening of Arena Park developed by NEPI Rockcastle - a leading property investor, operator and developer in Central and Eastern Europe.


The JYSK, store will be one out of 11 stores that will be present in the newly built Arena Park that will offer in total 8.000 sqm of retail space. Other tenants include INTERSPORT, KIK, PEPCO, PITTA ROSSO and the first LC WAIKIKI store in Zagreb.

As Arena Park has been developed right next to the largest shopping center in Zagreb Arena Centar, its retail offer of affordable brands will complement the vast offer of the shopping center.

Arena Centar houses 10 large and more than 200 small and mid-sized retail units, as well as the largest INTERSPAR hypermarket in Croatia.

Besides its vast range of global fashion retailers, the mall also offers a wide range of gastronomy and entertainment facilities, including the first IMAX cinema in the region and 4DX Exclusive Samsung cinema.


At the moment, JYSK, operates a network of 42 stores in Croatia, employing 356 workers in total.

Within the South East Europe region, the Danish furniture giant is also present in Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo.
