A NEW No Fix No Fee electronics repair shop opened in Galashiels last week.

DC Repairs now occupies the former DC Sports shop (No relation) at 42 Market Street and repairs microelectronics & analogue equipment, such as laptops, desktops, phones, tablets, headphones, game consoles, amplifiers, car ECUs, and much more.

Owner Graham Di-Cara (29) who is originally from Gordon in Berwickshire but now stays in Earlston obtained his Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computer Science at Napier University in Edinburgh.

After graduation, he initially starting a business in Edinburgh before returning to the Borders where he worked for the NHS for a spell at Newstead on a new patient management system and has experience working with sensitive information.

But now he is following his passion after building up a loyal customer base operating from the Geek Retreat in Channel Street, Galashiels.

Services include recovering lost or corrupted date, repairing slow running devices that might just need a new lease of life, electronic car keys that aren’t working to specification, and a whole lot more. In fact anything with a PCB board.

He said: “I really enjoy what I do. It’s a passion for me. And the feedback I get from customers is very motivational. It’s a great feeling to see them when something is repaired and at a reasonable price.

“Last February I started working from the Geek Retreat initially for two days a week then once demand increased that increased to four days.

“But after the sudden closure of the Geek Retreat I decided to look for premises and here we are, it’s sink or swim time.

“But I managed to build up a very good customer base at the Geek Retreat with many regulars which is great.

“And I’m more that happy for anyone to pop in for a discussion over a cup of our coffee and there is no fee it something can’t be fixed.

“The shop is open Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm although on Wednesdays we close at 2pm, so please pop in and say hi, give us a try and you'll be surprised at what we can do.”

Graham will be assisted by his partner Jasmine Buntin in the shop.
