The move is another blow to the iconic city street which has experienced two fires this year including the Glasgow School of Art and Victoria's Nightclub blazes.

The incidents put several businesses on the shopping street out of operation while work is ongoing to make the fire-hit building safe.

In a statement, Bo Concept said: "You may have heard the rumours, and, well, they're true. We are extremely excited to announce that our Glasgow store will be relocating soon. We are hoping to announce the new location this week, so keep your eyes peeled for information."

Bo Concept have not cited reasons for the move and promise to stay in the city.
