Fort Kinnaird is welcoming a range of new names as well as a gym and all of this will mean around 100 new jobs.

In a first Pure Gym is set to open a 20,000 sq ft facility in summer 2018.

Other big names who will be opening shops include Office, Schuh and Schuh Kids, Wilko and Tapi Carpets, and Starbucks will unveil a new format café in one of the units next month.

JD Sports will double in size and Currys PC World is also getting even bigger 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 for our customers at Fort Kinnaird.

“Fort Kinnaird used to be known simply as a ‘shopping park’ but that has changed so much in the past couple of years with the introduction of our cinema, restaurants and the experience our fantastic range of stores is offering. Adding a gym to the mix really cements our position as a leading leisure destination for Edinburgh.

“We are confident the gym and new stores are going to prove very popular with our customers.”

Fort Kinnaird, which is open to 10pm on weekdays and has 2600 free parking spaces, also recently welcomed Oak Furniture Land and a new Waterstones café concept store.
