The store, which is operated by franchisee Goldex Investments, is opposite Haywards Heath train station.

A spokesman said: “With its extended opening hours, 6.30am to 7pm, Monday to Friday, and 7am to 7pm on Saturday and 8am to 6pm Sunday, it offers commuters an opportunity to visit the store both on their way to and from work.”

Store manager Melissa Warner was delighted by the design of the store.

She said: “I think the store looks fantastic, our contemporary and comfortable seating means it will be a great place for our customers to come and meet their friends, or grab a quick coffee on the way to the train station.”
