Surge of interest in High Street
Tenants have been found for the empty coffee shop near to Uckfield railway station.
Legal work has been completed and the new business will continue to sell coffee but also offer light food and takeaways.
News that the premises will soon be back in action came from commercial agents Oldfield Smith and Co.
Partner Richard Oldfield also revealed to UckfieldNews.com more positive news about the town’s High Street.
Mr Oldfield said he expected the former Online Coffee to be re-named and re-launched.
The new tenants, he said, come from a catering and hospitality background.
There had been, he said, a huge amount of interest and the letting was for the full asking amount.
Online Coffee closed in January because of the rail strikes but did not re-open.
He said two more empty shop premises in the High Street were close to trading once again.
The former Fun Net Café was at a letting agreed stage with contracts in the hands of lawyers.
He said it would be a “lovely business” moving in.
They are not trading in the town with the concern actively seeking out premises in Uckfield.
The former angling centre is also under offer.
Mr Oldfield said: “There has been a massive surge of activity in the High Street. This is very good news. The town is thriving.”
