Jysk Group has developed considerably since Danish tradesman Lars Larsen opened his first store in the city of Aarhus in 1979.

Both turnover and number of stores have risen steadily, and the turnover of the financial year 2014/15 was €2.9b, while the EBIT result was €414m - €17m better than the result for 2013/14.

Owner and chairman of Jysk, Lars Larsen says: "The long term goal has always been to make Jysk a bigger and more profitable company. The increase in turnover and earnings shows that we have done well and set new landmarks in the development of Jysk Group. However, we are far from finished. We will continue to open new Jysk stores around the world, and at the same time we will strengthen and expand our online operations, so we have online sales in all of the countries where JYSK has stores."
