Chapter Three, the boutique opposite Uckfield Library, is to close at the end of June.
Owner Kay Bevan says the time is right for her to take a step back and concentrate on family, spending more time with those who have supported her over the years.
She said: “To all our lovely customers and friends made along the way, thank you for your support and repeat custom. Without you we wouldn’t have survived the years we have.”
Kay added that a new business would be moving in, bringing something fresh to the High Street. “We wish them well in this great little shop in a fabulous little town. I hope Uckfield supports you.”
She said much of the stock at Chapter Three would be seriously discounted and urged customers with outstanding vouchers to use them before the end of June.
Tres Joli and Joli Couture
Kay launched her business as Tres Joli at 21a High Street focussing on lingerie. Next she opened Joli Couture at 75 High Street combining fashion and lingerie but eventually focussing on fashion and gifts.
She decided on the third move – the Third Chapter – to 176 High Street when the lease on those premises came to an end.
