WAITROSE will be closing its base in Littlehampton on Wednesday (July 22) in preparation for the opening of the retailer’s new store in Rustington, next Thursday (July 23).

The shop in Anchor Springs will cease trading at 6pm on Wednesday, with the new shop, in Broadmark Parade, opening the following day.

Those working at Littlehampton will transfer across to Rustington, with a total of ten new jobs being created.

Sarah Wickens, a director of Store Property Holdings, landlord for many of the Rustington’s retailers, said: “The new Waitrose store is exciting news for Rustington.

“The village already offers wonderful choice for shoppers in a beautiful environment to visit, with more than 80 local stores including high street names and inspiring independent boutiques, plus plenty of free parking, so we believe this will make it an even more popular shopping destination.”

The Rustington store will open its doors to the public at 8am.

The shop will run a click-and-collect service for those shopping at John Lewis online.
