The firm says it will be the UK's next "new generation concept store", featuring room sets and fully accessorised furniture displays to inspire shoppers.

The opening morning will include free ice cream for customers and hints and tips on how to bring Hygge - the Scandi knack of making your home and garden cosy - to St Helens.

David Ashton, country manager for JYSK UK, said: "We are accelerating our growth within the UK and St Helens is one of the first on the expansion trail. It’s a destination we have chosen specifically for our new-look concept store. St Helens customers will enjoy an attractive and inspiring store to spark ideas for their next big (or small) in or outdoor furnishing project."
