Luxury craftsmanship brand Johnstons of Elgin has opened a new pop-up store at Scotland's designer village, Caledonia Park.

Established in 1797, Johnstons of Elgin is one of the last few remaining vertical mills in the UK still carrying out all the processes from raw cashmere and fine woollen fibres right through to the finished product.

Spanning 2,350 sq ft, the new Johnstons of Elgin boutique at Caledonia Park stocks recent collections from the label’s New Bond Street flagship store, including womenswear and menswear ranges, alongside textile accessories and woven home furnishings.

Railpen, the investment manager for the £32bn Railways Pension Scheme, owns and manages the outlet retail destination formerly known as Gretna Gateway Village. The company has recently allocated significant investment to a refurbishment program at Caledonia Park, incorporating a comprehensive revitalisation of the public realm, refurbishing store units, and upgrading landscaping.

Mahmoud Attia, Asset Manager at RPMI Railpen, commented: “Securing the first and only outlet site for a brand of this calibre, especially one with such a well-aligned Scottish heritage, speaks volumes for Caledonia Park and elevates the destination’s premium designer offering even further. Caledonia Park continues to outperform national retail performance averages, and we are confident the entrance of Johnstons of Elgin’s pop-up will see this momentum continue.”

George McNeil, Managing Director Retail at Johnstons of Elgin, said: “We are delighted to be working with Caledonia Park on this exciting pop-up store as we trial a new location for our brand. I'm pleased that visitors to Caledonia Park will now be able to discover our brand and the story of our rich Scottish heritage.”

The launch of Johnstons of Elgin follows news of the progress of the phased refurbishment works at Caledonia Park, which is due for completion in winter 2021.
