An inside look at the UK’s biggest JYSK store now open in Bolton

Must read


JYSK’s Bolton store has reopened its doors after an XL refurb.

If you’re not on the JYSK hype yet, then what are you doing with your life?

The Danish homeware brand sells loads of beautiful bits for your home, with prices that would even have IKEA in a cold sweat – and now, it’s just opened its biggest UK store yet right here in Greater Manchester, with massive discounts during its opening week.

JYSK, pronounced ‘yoosk’ – which is fun – has just opened the doors to its first XL store in Bolton, after fully-refurbishing the existing shop.

Tucked away on Bolton Gate Retail Park (where there’s also a really good Dunelm and a Hobbycraft), the new-look massive JYSK is made up of two floors of affordable Scandi furniture – some of which is normally only available online.

It’s also got even more room for home inspiration and displays, more stock, and a same-day click-and-collect service too.

The new Bolton XL JYSK spans a massive 1,201 sq metres, and offers up to 70% off hundreds of products throughout its opening week.

The brand has Scandinavian roots (we honestly associate Scandinavia with nothing but nice furniture, meatballs, and Greta Thunberg at this point), and sells everything from bedroom furniture to garden bits to decorative items.

JYSK says its new Bolton store is its “most exciting UK store launch to date”.

“It is our first XL store, and it has been designed to improve customer shopping experiences,” explained Ciaron Hearns, who is the Sales and Marketing Manager at JYSK UK & Ireland.

“Our Bolton customers will have seen the transformation of the Bolton store over the last three months, and we’re delighted to unveil all the hard work from the JYSK teams. 

“Dedicated customers will see that the XL concept differs from our usual store format, now featuring more space and inspiration, as well as a wider product assortment, increased stock, and more creative and stylish displays.

“Not only this, but we’re pleased to include furniture and accessories from our assortment that are normally only exclusively available online.”

JYSK says it’s committed to bringing our customers “the best shopping experience possible”.

“As with all JYSK UK stores, customers in Bolton will be able to enjoy our brilliant same-day click and collect service, AnyVan local next day delivery service, and exclusive in-store lines,” Ciaron continued.

“We are so looking forward to you there.”

Amazon to introduce same-day delivery charges for Prime customers

Amazon has announced plans to introduce some delivery charges for Prime customers for the first time ever.

Amazon Prime is a fee-paying subscription service that gives its 15 million UK members access to a range of super-fast delivery options, exclusive music and video streaming content, and more – but despite it already costing a regularly-rising £8.99 every month for the privileges, customers will soon have to part with even more cash.

For the first time ever, Amazon is to begin charging Prime customers an extra £1.99 for same-day delivery if their order is below the £20 minimum threshold required.

Up until now, Amazon Prime customers have previously not had to part with any extra pennies to have eligible items delivered to their door on the same day, provided they place their order by midday, but it’s understood that many have this week started receiving emails that this will no longer be the case.

The retailer has said it will start charging Prime customers for same-day delivery from Monday 18 September.

Amazon says it prides itself on “constantly innovating to deliver a wide selection of great value products at the fastest speeds” – with more than a million items now available and eligible for Same-Day Delivery in the UK.

But that privilege will soon come at a cost.

The email which is believed to have been starting to land in customers’ inboxes this week reads: “Same-day delivery can be selected at checkout, but there will be a fee of £1.99 per delivery for orders under £20.

“The fee for customers who are not Prime members will remain £5.99.”

It’s understood, at this point, that all other Amazon Prime orders will not come with an additional charge, and there won’t be any additional charges for other Prime services.

Heinz has just launched hash browns filled with tomato ketchup

This is not a drill… it’s happened again.

You may remember that around this time last year, Heinz took two absolute staples of British cuisine, baked beans and hash browns, and combined them together to create a new delicacy exclusively available in Iceland.

Unsurprisingly, they proved to be the ideal snack for anyone who finds themselves reliant on fried food to get through a hangover from hell, or to wake up on a lazy Sunday morning.

Now, fresh-off-the-back of the success of the Beanz Filled Hash Browns comes your next food craving – hash browns filled with ketchup.

We all know ketchup and hash browns are as much of iconic pairing as Ant and Dec, socks and sandals, and Jack Grealish and Jägerbombs, so the fact they’ve now been combined together into one crispy savoury snack could not be more convenient.

Once again available exclusively in Iceland supermarkets across the UK, the brand-new Heinz Tomato Ketchup Filled Hash Browns sees the “unmistakable taste” of Heinz‘s tomato tetchup injected straight into the middle of a hash brown.

The popular food manufacturers are calling them the “perfect accompaniment for the ultimate brekkie”.

Setting you back just £3 per bag, the new ketchup hash browns are both low in saturated fat and suitable for vegetarians.

The new Heinz Tomato Ketchup Filled Hash Browns will be available in Iceland stores and online at Iceland Foods from next Monday (28 August).
