A booming Ayrshire baby business has received the keys ahead of the opening of its new flagship store in Irvine. 

123 ABC Pram and Nursery Centre, which currently has stores in Ayr, Kilmarnock and Cumnock, is moving into the former Designer Rooms premises in Ayr Road.

The Designer Rooms closed for the final time last month, as it sets up a new superstore in Kilmarnock's Fowlds Street.

The premises at 7-9 Irvine Road will then be transformed into the Ayrshire Baby Centre, an offshoot of 123 ABC. 

The baby business has now confirmed that big things are happening, with the keys to the premises now in hand. 

A spokesperson said: "Irvine, we are coming for you. Super excited to start shop-fitting. Like and follow our posts to see our progress. Can't wait to welcome you all."

They had previously stated: "We will be opening the doors mid-April to our new store Ayrshire Baby Centre located at 7-9 Ayr Road, Irvine.

"Work is well underway and we will keep you all updated with the working progress and we can’t wait to show you everything we have in store for all your little ones needs."

The Designer Rooms announced earlier this year that it was closing and merging its Irvine and Kilmarnock stores, and moving to a bigger premises in the East Ayrshire town.
