New store boost for Fort Kinnaird shoppers
Fort Kinnaird: new arrivals
Edinburgh retail and leisure destination Fort Kinnaird is welcoming a range of additional stores, as well as a gym, creating more than 100 jobs.
Pure Gym will open the first gym at the park when it launches a 20,000 sq ft facility next summer.
Office, Schuh, Schuh Kids, Wilko and Tapi Carpets are also in the pipeline and Starbucks will unveil a new format café in a bespoke unit next month.
JD Sports is doubling in size and Currys PC World is enlarging to becoming the region’s flagship store with almost 40,000 sq ft of space. Card Factory and O2 are both relocating.
Liam Smith, Centre Director at Fort Kinnaird, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured these big brand names.
“Fort Kinnaird used to be known simply as a ‘shopping park’ but that has changed so much in the past couple of years.”
Oak Furniture Land and a Waterstones café concept store opened recently.
