The deal is done – pizza chain Caprinos is taking over the former Hardware Goods premises in Uckfield High Street.
Commercial agent Chris Lawson, of Lawson Commercial, said a deal was in the offing earlier this month and has now confirmed it is in place.
He said the keys to 21c High Street have been handed over and a LET board should be going up this week.
Caprinos is based in Surrey and has 30 outlets across the country and in Wales.
The news about Caprinos’ interest in the former hardware store came at the same time as Chris revealed KFC is interested in opening a restaurant and takeaway at the former Goodwins betting office at Bell Walk, Uckfield.
KFC is applying for planning permission to operate in those premises.
