New one-stop shop luggage store opens at Edinburgh

A new store opened at Edinburgh Airport gives passengers a one-stop-shop for all their luggage needs.

Luggage-Point, a retail and service arm of Weigh-ahead, is now open in the airport’s new terminal extension.

The outlet stocks luxury brands like Samsonite, Kipling, Trunki and Fiorelli, and offers a dry-cleaning drop-off and collection service, as well as lost property, storage and bag wrap facilities.

The Edinburgh store is also the first retailer in the world to stock exclusive merchandise from Rise Gear, which can roll packing and storage all into one.

Open from 4am-10pm, passengers can take full advantage of the storage and shipping facilities all in one convenient location.

The airport’s Shop and Collect service will also be based at Luggage-Point.

Edinburgh Airport is to also install the very latest design of the patented Best-weigh pre-check-in weighing units, where passengers are able to check the weight of their luggage against the permitted allowance no matter which airline they’re flying with or destination.

In a matter of seconds users are advised if their luggage is under or over their allowance, and if too heavy, the system automatically calculates and advises of any potential charges, while machines are fitted with card payment facilities and are located in the main check-in hall.

A free re-weigh service is also available to passengers wishing to re-pack their bag for that extra piece of mind.

Richard Townsend, head of retail and property at Edinburgh Airport, said: “We’re passionate about giving our passengers the very best choice and experience and our retail development programme has focused on this.

“Having the new Luggage-Point store in our new terminal means that customers can have the choice of fantastic products and services in the one place.

“We want to make the passenger journey as easy and stress-free as possible so the fact we can now offer services like bag wrapping and dry-cleaning will be a real benefit to our customers.”
