The former Joli Couture shop in Uckfield High Street has been let to a ‘new catering-style business’, according to commercial agents Lawson Commercial.
Planning permission for the new use, at 114 High Street, is expected to take a few weeks to come through and in the meantime, in the run up to Christmas, the premises are to be let to Allsorts who have a shop opposite.
Chris Lawson, a partner at Lawson Commercial said: “Rather than leave the shop empty in this prominent location, the landlord felt it would be much better and look much nicer to allow a local retailer to use the space to offer an expanded range over the Christmas period.”
• The owner of Joli Couture has since opened a new business, Chapter Three, at 176 High Street. Read more here: Chapter Three is off to a good start for Uckfield businesswoman.
