Edinburgh’s Princes Street is the world famous shopping heart of the Capital.
After hundreds of years being filled with the buzz and bustle of the city, it fell quiet during the coronavirus pandemic.
But Princes Street is gradually coming alive again as lockdown eases.
From today – Monday April 26 – non-essential shops are allowed to open their doors once again.
Some businesses – like M&S and Boots – have been allowed to stay open during lockdown, while others have been open for collection only.
And sadly, there are some shops which will not be reopening their doors. Topshop and Debenhams are among the big names which have suffered due to the pandemic and changing habits on the British High Street.
While Edinburgh’s iconic Jenners store in Princes Street is soon to close forever.
It is a reminder to shoppers that we need to use it or lose it, as the saying goes.
Here are the retailers which have so far confirmed they are fully reopening in Princes Street today (April 26).
Russell & Bromley
The Perfume Shop
This list will be added to as more businesses are confirmed.
