A sign has been placed on the window of a Littlehampton home and hardware store announcing its closure.
The notice at Bunce’s Home Hardware in Littlehampton High Street states ‘this branch is now closed’.
Similar signs have appeared at both Worthing branches of the store – in Portland Road and the Hambridge Trading Estate, Willowbrook Road.
Bunce’s owns several stores in Sussex, including in Horsham, Steyning and Lewes.
The Herald has approached the company for a comment.
