Liam Smith, Centre Director at Fort Kinnaird, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have secured these big brand names for our customers at Fort Kinnaird.
“Fort Kinnaird used to be known simply as a ‘shopping park’ but that has changed so much in the past couple of years with the introduction of our cinema, restaurants and the experience our fantastic range of stores is offering. Adding a gym to the mix really cements our position as a leading leisure destination for Edinburgh.
“We are confident the gym and new stores are going to prove very popular with our customers.”
