A name change is on the cards for Uckfield boutique Joli Couture when it opens in new premises later this year.
The current High Street shop is due to close on Friday May 27 but the business will be resurrected at the former TN22 shop at 176 High Street following refurbishment there.
Owner Kay Bevan said a clearance sale would begin at Joli Couture in April and she’s planning two ladies’ nights with drinks, nibbles and “ridiculous reductions”. The dates will be announced later.
Many shop fixtures and fittings will also be for sale and anybody interested in buying anything is asked to let Kay know.
She said the business would be given a new look without losing its identity and customers would still be able to find the products they love at the new shop.
She is pleased that the tanning studio above Joli Couture will also be moving to new ownership in the town.
Kay had originally planned to close her business when a five-year break in a ten-year lease came up but customers were so disappointed when they heard the news that she changed her mind.
Kay told Uckfield News at the time: “I really wasn’t ready to go but had to make a decision about whether to commit to another five years because of the break in the lease.
“I was overwhelmed by the reaction of customers when they heard I was planning to go and so have been re-thinking my plans.” She was very grateful for their support.
Kay is hoping to re-open the business, with its new name, at 176 High Street in June.
