Phone giant in city move

A MAJOR mobile phone retailer is to open a new flagship store in the Capital.

Carphone Warehouse has signed a ten-year lease to take over the current JJB Sports store in Princes Street.

Stuart Moncur, head of retail for Cushman & Wakefield in Scotland, which worked on the deal, said: “This is indicative of the increased interest from retailers to secure new premises in Edinburgh city centre.

“This is clearly very good news for Edinburgh.”
