A project that will see empty premises in Selkirk used as temporary pop-up shops could improve footfall to the town, according to the Chamber of Trade Chairman.
Will Haegeland hopes to see five of the town's empty shops being used 80 percent of the time between now and December 2013.
£22,000 is being given towards the scheme and the Chamber of Trade are now looking for a Project Manager to take it forward.
People interested in renting a shop can do so for any amount of time.
Anyone interested in the scheme can contact Will at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01750721233.
