Edinburgh St James and John Lewis are partnering with Essential Edinburgh and Queen Margaret University (QMU) on the unique student ambassadors (STARS) programme, employing QMU students to welcome visitors to Edinburgh and help people find their way around the City. At Edinburgh St James, the STARS are informing members of the public of the important changes in the area of the former St James Shopping site now that demolition is underway. The STARS are helping people navigate the site and become accustomed to new routes, particularly to access amenities such as the bus station and tram stops, and to the John Lewis entrances on Leith St. QMU has already successfully delivered the STARS programme at Edinburgh International Airport and Edinburgh Waverley Station. The STARS are located at the former entrances to the centre on Elder St and Leith St every day until early November. They will return in the run up to the busy Christmas period.
