Loaf has confirmed that its latest and largest new “Shack” will be opening its doors on Thursday 9th February 2023 in Edinburgh – the first Loaf showroom to open in Scotland!
The Brit-brand’s ninth Shack will be opening in Peel L&P’s Straiton Retail Park and will be its largest showroom to date. This open-plan 9,100 sq ft site will pay homage to life in the slow lane (it’s a slowroom, not a showroom!) and house Loaf’s signature sofas, beds, handmade furniture and latest laid-back wares.
As well as having plenty of space to try-out Loaf’s famously squidgy sofas and chairs, a mezzanine will house a mattress testing area, in addition to 800 sq. ft dedicated to smaller Loafing Supplies (including mugs, candles and hot water bottles) which customers can purchase and take away on the day. The brand-new Straiton Retail Park will also have colouring stations and arcade games for for little (and not-so-little) Loafers to enjoy. According to Loaf, their Straiton store will be a haven for kicking back and relaxing.
Loaf’s founder, Charlie Marshall, says: “It’s high time people in Scotland had a bit of Loaf on their doorstep so they can kick their shoes off in style. Our new Edinburgh Shack is packed full of our squishy sofas, beds, cabinetry, lighting and plenty of Loafing Supplies: all basic requirements for a happy life in the slow lane! We can’t wait to open the doors!”
Julian Wilkinson, Director Retail Parks at Peel L&P added: “Loaf choosing Straiton Retail Park as the location for their very first store in Scotland marks another exciting milestone for our destination.
“At Straiton Retail Park, we have a fantastic mix of some of the biggest brands in the lifestyle, convenience, and food sectors. By partnering up with Loaf we will also be able to offer our community one of the most innovative and Instagram-able brands in the interiors sector. Loaf’s new Edinburgh shack will be a must visit for any trip to Straiton Retail Park.”
With plenty of on-site parking at Straiton Retail Park, Loaf can’t wait to introduce their laid-back world to Scotland.
