STACK-IT-HIGH LOCALS AIM TO GAIN

With concern mounting over the prospects of Britain crashing out of Europe, and the potential negative effects of such a hard Brexit on business and visitor numbers in the Scottish capital, you may think this is a difficult time to make money in Edinburgh.

Think again. Enterprising residents are finding a new way to prosper in the face of uncertainty, and observers say it could turn out to be more than a short-term trend.

The new earning model is called ‘warehoming’ or ‘warehosting’.

BAG NEWS FROM BROUGHTON ST

Take a butcher’s at this. 

The capital’s trendiest tote bag, designed by Edinburgh-based artist Alexandra Snowden, will be available the length and breadth of Broughton Street tomorrow. 

It comes as local traders celebrate the completion of gas repairs with a wide range of special offers, discounts, and tasters over the weekend. (Look out for balloons outside participating businesses.)
