Speaking of the closure, store manager Paul Maslin said: "It was very sad, but we’re lucky to still be here. We’re really excited to bring the Fopp party to the West End”.

To kick off the opening, Bruce Findlay, manager of Scottish rock band Simple Minds, will be the shop’s first customer. A DJ will also play at the opening as customers are welcomed into the new store.
