A NEW Arran Aromatics store is opening in Edinburgh. The store, which is well-known for making soaps and candles on Arran will initially open as a pop-up store in the heart of the capital.

Throughout the store’s launch day there will be prize giveaways including a shell treasure hunt in-store and shoppers will also have the chance to win a weekend break in Arran by taking a selfie and uploading their picture to social media using the hashtag #takemetoarran.

Carol Larkins, store manager, said: “Being in Edinburgh is great at any time; but to be here during the festival is amazing and the team has worked very hard to ensure that there is plenty for customers to see and do in store during launch weekend”.

The new shop will open at 63 George Street, next door to Jack Wills, at 11pm this Saturday.
