Co-op has confirmed the closing date for its Haywards Heath store.
A spokesman told the Middy: “We confirm that our store on South Road, Haywards Heath will be closing to customers on Sunday, October 14.
“In a rapidly evolving market, unfortunately, from time to time, certain stores cease to be commercially sustainable for us.
“The decision to exit a site is never taken lightly and we always fully consider all options available to us.
“We remain committed to the Haywards Heath community with fundraising and support for local causes continuing from our petrol station at 104 Franklynn Road, Haywards Heath.
“This store offers a full range of products including a bakery and our Local Flavours range which supports local producers in the region.”
Post Office services are currently being offered at the convenience store.
The Post Office is now looking for a long-term replacement branch in the town.
It is welcoming any applications from potential retail partners interested in running a branch on its behalf.
