The re-opening date for a popular Cumnock business has been pushed back.

The Cumnock Factory Outlet was badly damagedย by fire last July.

The store has remained closed since then, with the fire causing "significant" damage to areas of the shop's interior.

An initial opening date had been set for this September, with work ongoing to fix the fire-damaged areas.

But the re-opening plans have now been pushed back until later in the year.

Many of the fixtures from within the store could be seen in the parking area outdoors, with some damage apparent.

Images shared on the shop's social media showed how extensive the damage had been.

Now, a further update has ben posted to say that a new opening date has been set, and that progress pictures will be shared to show how the shop is recovering.

A company spokesperson said: "We are missing you all and are delighted to share out latest update with you. We hope you are all doing well.

"We are so pleased to share that renovations of Cumnock Factory Outlet are well under way and our anticipated re-opening will be early November this year, just in time for all your Christmas shopping.
