The launch will also play host to Glasgow’s favourite busker, Ben Monteith as well as DJ Maveen, who will be on hand to entertain the crowds while they shop.

Colin Temple, managing director at Schuh, said: “Opening a new store always causes a certain amount of anticipation, however, as Glasgow is our heartland we are excited to see the reaction to schuh at the buzzing Buchanan Galleries.”
