Pop-up shops could 'change Selkirk's fortunes'

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.

People interested in renting a shop can do so for any amount of time.
