Taylor Family Butcher moves from Selkirk to Gala

But that changed this week when Taylor’s Family Butcher took over the store across from the Tapestry Building.

Ex-Jethart John Taylor set up a popular business in Selkirk after taking over the Halliwell store four years ago.

And during the coronavirus restrictions, serve pancakes and scotch eggs to outdoor markets and food festivals.

But a combination of job losses in the city and a cost-of-living crisis has led to a drop in demand.

And the recent rise in energy prices from £1,000 a month to £2,500 meant that keeping the company running as before was not possible.

His initial intention was to close the Selkirk store and focus solely on supplying markets and food festivals.

But when he learned that Nobel was available, he said it was a “no brainer”.

The 50-year-old said: “I was just looking for some places so I could focus on scotch eggs and making pancakes for festivals and markets, and then this opportunity came at just the right time – of the mind and not something I could turn down.

“For the largest city in Borders, not having a butcher was unbelievable.

“We will have locally produced meat from a farm near Jedburgh which is of excellent quality and what makes us different from supermarkets is that you can go in and buy one sausage, one slice of bacon or black pudding. You don’t have to buy a whole package.

“As soon as we announced on social media that we had taken over this store, I was overwhelmed by the public reaction. We have so many posts sending us good wishes and people who walked into the store saying they couldn’t wait for us to open.

“Our rates will be the same as in Selkirk and we will be open from 7.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 7.30pm to 2pm on Saturdays.

We also launch loyalty cards and details are available on our Facebook page under “Gala’s New Butchers”.

“I would like to thank all of our wonderful and loyal customers at Taylor’s Family Butcher Selkirk, and if they still want our products, we will offer free delivery at the borders that cover Selkirk.”
