Two Falkirk stores have a new look.

Wilkies in Newmarket Street launches its tearoom today, while jeweller Chisholm Hunter has expanded its outlet in the Howgate Shopping Centre.

Karen Forret, Wilkies’ managing director, revealed the tearoom, which will feature Truly Scrumptious cupcakes, is being officially opened by Provost Pat Reid.

She said: “The tearoom in our Stirling store has always been popular and we are sure our Falkirk customers will love the delicious menu on offer.”

Chisholm Hunter’s refurbished and extended store opened yesterday (Wednesday) and has more than doubled the original floorspace.

Director Tracey Brown said: “We were all excited when we first saw the plans for the store but the end result has far exceeded even our expectations and the first customers love it.”
