This is the largest town in the Borders and is basically the commercial and industrial base. if you want a 24 hour Tesco, or go to B&Q this is the place. Main st would make you cry as there are more closed than open shops. Its a bit depressed to say the least. Having said that its got lots of shops from bicycle to bread to barber and its where we go every week to do our main shopping as Kelso does not yet have a supermarket. When the Sainsburies opens next year things will change for a lot of people and Galashiels will get more depressed unfortunately.
