Edinburgh residents give their views on the fate of iconic Jenners store
Evening News readers believe Princes Street won’t be the same without Jenners. Here are some of your responses
Princes Street won’t be the same without Jenners. My aunty Daisy worked all her working life in the china department from the 1920s to 1960s.
What a pity! It will not be nice to walk around Princes Street and see it transformed into a street with no history, only with large chain stores that have little to do with the history and charm of Edinburgh.
That’s very sad. To me this was the shop. Magical at Christmas.

Yaaayyyy. Replacing it with yet another overpriced hotel... coz that’s exactly what Edinburgh needs!
Jenners is my favourite shop, it’s so beautiful. Princes Street won’t be the same if it goes.
How many could actually afford to shop there anyway? Keep voting to stay British and this will happen more as folk get more skint.
The city centre was trashed years ago. First the parking, then the ridiculous rates.
RIP Princes Street.
Edinburgh has lost so much since the 90s. It’s now become a gigantic Disneyworld type, airbnb town. Jenners will shut, welcoming more temporary beds type accommodation. More Christmas sheds and now a naff Poundland. The city is still beautiful but the council truly did a great job in destroying the magic. Wait until the horrific ribbon centre opens.
Well, all those posh people who moaned about the Poundland shop opening, I bet they are sick now.

Centre of excellence
Shops and food outlets confirmed for Edinburgh’s rebuilt 1.7 million sq-ft St James shopping centre.
No charity chops then. Sadly won’t get my business. Mango, mind you, did make a lovely perfume. The only other Stradivarius fashion store I’ve seen is in Malta. Nothing special. Always nice to have a mix of shops. Just a personal view.
Will be interesting to see the finished look. Looking forward to seeing all the great shops open. I just hope Princes Street shops don’t get left behind.
Would love a Disney store back in the city centre!
Am I the only one who has never heard of Mango before – aside from the fruit?
Muirhouse shopping centre is going to have to up its game to remain Edinburgh’s premier shopping centre.
What a truly ghastly piece of ‘architecture’!
Essentially, from what has been mentioned, apart from Mango, you’re still shopping in one shop – Inditex.
We do need to match other city centre shopping areas. We are the capital of Scotland after all. Where are our big attractions?
It reads like a list of who SHOULD be trading on Princes Street! Can’t wait.
Sounds like a great addition to the city.
Hope there’s gonna be decently priced shops in there and not just high end stores.
But shopping centres are a thing of the past, everyone goes online now.
Wouldn’t be able to afford anything from these designer shops.
So city centre retail shopping is going to make a comeback!
Finally, a shopping centre worthy of a capital city.
Three-storey Zara? They shut the Livingston one because it wasn’t making money, and it was an outlet.
Council to push for ‘disruptive’ fireworks to be reduced to bring peace and quiet to Edinburgh.
I agree immensely with organised events only. My dogs are petrified. They get so ill with fear.
It’s not just two nights a year, fireworks are set off for weeks before and after 5 November. People were asking for organised displays only.
Make them use silent ones, especially in Edinburgh during August -six nights a week for the whole festival.
Honestly, I don’t know any other city that has as many fireworks displays as Edinburgh!
