Worldwide retailer of luxury cosmetics Space NK has opened a new concept store in Edinburgh, Scotland, as part of its wider expansion plans, taking its UK shop total to 73. 

Located on the third floor of the new St James Quarter shopping centre, it promises to be a beauty destination for shoppers.

It has make-up and skin care play tables, two treatment rooms offering facials and a fragrance discovery area showcasing “an edit of the most coveted brands”.

The store also features “clear navigation” for easy shopping and customers can “spend time with our store team to learn more about a brand and build a routine based on their concerns,” said the company.

The brand is also demonstrating its eco commitments with a dedicated refill area, where customers can top up their Space NK hand and body empties, as well as recycle used beauty packaging in store.

The shop is twice the size of Space NK’s long established store in the capital, which is situated on George Street. 

“We are delighted to open our new concept store in Edinburgh. We look forward to bringing everything Space NK offers to our customers here,” said Space NK CEO Andy Lightfoot.

“The store features our new design which represents the physical evolution of Space NK.

"A more customer-centric, welcoming environment with more brands, more choice and more exclusives, all there to be touched and tried, together with our expert staff. 

“We are proud to continue to innovate with our customers at the heart of everything we do.”

Space NK is also set to open its debut store in Liverpool, UK, in June.

It will be a 1,850sqft retail space located at the Liverpool One shopping centre.
