The new Hotlight store, at the much anticipated St James Quarter, is only the third concept store to open its doors alongside the Edinburgh Hermiston Gait and Glasgow Braehead stores, and only the second to open in Edinburgh since the first opening back in 2013.

Krispy Kreme’s world renowned ‘Hotlight’ gives doughnut-fans the opportunity to enjoy the magic of a freshly made Original Glazed doughnut hot fresh off the line - whenever you see the ‘Hot Now’ sign lit up at a Hotlight concept store.
