Wex Photo Video Edinburgh

THE UK’s largest specialist photographic retailer, Wex Photo Video, has today announced the opening of its new store on Haddington Place, in the heart of the Scottish capital. Replacing its Bonnington outlet, the new store will officially open its doors on 3rd May 2024 with a grand opening event hosted by award-winning photographer David Gillanders.

The opening will see a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony and guests can expect exclusive in-store discounts on the latest gear and hands-on support from brand representatives. 

The relocation comes as the retailer continues to expand its investment in the city and looks to serve even more customers with extensive equipment and technical support. As Edinburgh is home to almost 50,000 students, those studying will get up to 10% off selected brands in-store as well as free online courses and general tips and tricks will be available through the Wex Student Hub

Customers can find a broad range of equipment accompanied by comprehensive services. Like all other stores, it will be staffed by a team of industry experts who will offer impartial buying advice and provide invaluable technical assistance.  

Displayed across a hi-tech play table, the store stocks a wide range of gear from leading brands such as Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic Lumix, Manfrotto and DJI showcasing mirrorless cameras and lenses, camera accessories, video and audio equipment, studio accessories and harder-to-find categories such as astronomy and optics.  

Louis Wahl, Chief Executive Officer at Wex Photo Video, commented: “The relocation of our Edinburgh store provides greater opportunity to help our customers, old and new, with support and equipment to bring their visions to life. Enthusiasts and professionals in the city are already familiar with our offering and their interest and passion in photography has led us to increase our investment here. We’re looking forward to officially opening the doors and welcoming Sophie Gerrard to help us celebrate this moment.” 

Open seven days a week, 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday (opening at 10am on Wednesday), and 11am to 5pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays, the new store will be located within walking distance of various routes to and from the city centre.
