Queues were forming outside Next for its famous sale from the early hours and other stores opened their doors to hordes of shoppers at 9am.

Liam Smith, Centre Manager at Fort Kinnaird, said:

“The Boxing Day sales have once again proven a massive success with Edinburgh shoppers who have flocked in their tens of thousands to take advantage of bargains. Many also seem to be skipping a second day of turkey with our new restaurants reporting a high number of visitors.”

Fort Kinnaird expects to welcome over 100,000 people over the course of the weekend with stores open 9am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 6pm on Sunday, with the busyness to continue into next week with many people continuing to be on holiday.
