Waitrose to reopen Sussex village store

Waitrose is to reopen a Sussex village store tomorrow (Thursday).

The village store – in Old Mill Square, Storrington – has been shut for nearly three weeks for refurbishment.

And when it reopens tomorrow it will have a new look ‘and new feel’ – and will also have some John Lewis products on offer.

The supermarket first closed on July 9 and later donated unused stock and existing furniture to charities across the village.


Tomorrow’s reopening will start at 8am with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Branch manager Russell Ingram said: "We're looking forward to welcoming customers back into our store and unveiling the shop's new look and feel.

"As well as having our usual ranges that our customers know and love, we've also added a selection of John Lewis products in store."

The closure coincided with works being carried out by Horsham District Council to nearby Mill Lane car park.
