KELSO shoppers can wake up and smell the coffee at a new “Nordic lifestyle” store as a planning bid is submitted to Scottish Borders Council.

The retrospective listed building application from Jack Blackwell is for the redecoration of the premises at 38 Woodmarket, now known as Dor Lifestyle.

The premises was for 20 years, up until October 2023, home to the Borders Blooms retail outlet.

A submission with the application says: “We are looking to open a high end Nordic lifestyle store, serving take away coffee from our shop.”
