A national clothing chain is set to reopen its Littlehampton branch two years after a devastating fire.

A new poster on the window of the former Peacocks store in Littlehampton High Street reads: “Exciting new store. Opening: Thursday 16th May 2024.

"Can’t wait? Shop with us online, www.peacocks.co.uk.”

The shop was forced to close in July 2022 after a blaze broke out.

Six fire engines from West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were sent to tackle the fire on the afternoon of Saturday, July 9. The branch has been closed ever since.
