The latest tenant in the Galashiels Transport Interchange has raised a few eyebrows. 

Eyebrow specialist Misty Crew has moved into the prominent building, constructed in 2015 to coincide with the launch of the Borders Railway and to provide a link between bus and rail services.  

The Scottish Beauty Industry Awards 2019 finalist is the latest firm to move into the facility which leaves just one unit available to rent in the Transport Interchange.

The opening of Misty’s brow bar follows the arrival of solicitor estate agents Cullen Kilshaw in May. Law firm Davidson Chalmers were the first tenants to move into the TI in February 2016. 

Our Convener, Councillor David Parker

 “I was delighted to help owner Misty Crew open her new brow bar service and wish her every success. 

“Misty has recognised the opportunity the Transport Interchange offers to a business. It is a hub of activity for both bus and rail users and new businesses, with around 3,000 people using the facility every day. 

“That the building’s office space is now almost full is testament to its good location and transport links, which we hope will encourage more businesses to start, grow and move to the Scottish Borders.” 

Misty Crew, who has previously picked up national awards for her work 

“I am really excited about this move into the Galashiels Transport Interchange and believe it will help my business to grow, with new clients now able to access us easily from train or bus.”
