Motorcycle accessories shop J&S is to open in part of the former Trading 4U premises on the Bellbrook Industrial Estate, Uckfield.
They are moving next door to Howden’s Joinery who have refurbished the whole building and moved into half of it themselves.
J&S have 26 stores across the country and their closest are in Dover and Portsmouth so the Uckfield one will plug a gap between Kent and Hampshire.
The premises have been let by chartered surveyors Oldfield Smith & Co and partner and director Richard Oldfield said it was very good for Uckfield to have attracted a national retailer.
He added: “J&S are a destination retailer and since they are moving into premises close to the town centre their customers are likely to spend more time in Uckfield.”
Mr Oldfield said the company had been looking for premises in the Uckfield area and this building was right for them. “It is the right size, the amenities are right – parking outside – and people will travel to where they are. They don’t need to be represented in a major town where rents are likely to be higher.”
