A stroll through town this evening (Jan 2015) has revealed that the retail sector is picking up here in Horsham. There are two new stores opened and a considerable number of existing stores are recruiting. Take a walk up West Street and elsewhere; you will see the following retail outlets, and more, have vacancies posted in their windows though check the date before following up:
- Edinburgh Woolen Mill
- Card Factory
- La Vida; firstname.lastname@example.org
- 1898 is an independent café/bistro email@example.com
- Horsham Sports Club, Cricketfield Road firstname.lastname@example.org
- Hair stylist position at JJ’S Salon Blackbridge Lane
Head down to Pump Alley, between Market Square and Denne Road, and there is a newly opened unit (Old Barn??) selling bridal accessories. Head across to Piries Place and you will find a new bridal shop, The Bridal Room, adding to its Reigate store, opposite Waitrose. Two new independent stores which is great for the town.
This has to be good news for the Horsham District as it is indicative of increased confidence and therefore spending money in the town.
