The wait is almost over for the new Primark store on the Haymarket and it will even have its own beauty salon.

The shop is set to open before Christmas and although Primark bosses haven't revealed the exact date, it is believed to be on Thursday, December 12.

The store temporarily shut its doors in April 2018 and since then the building has been demolished and rebuilt, extending into the neighbouring retail unit which was previously occupied by Dorothy Perkins and Wallis.

The city branch will boast three floors and will also have a Lashious Beauty salon, which is already in 20 shopping centres across the UK.

Lashious Beauty first opened its doors in 2009, with its headquarters in London, and in recent years has teamed up with Primark.
