The old Waitrose store in Piries Place has now closed. They have left it tidy with the windows obscured, sign-writing removed and directions to the new store. Some old residents were checking out the windows.
No sign of what is going there next. One Waitrose worker suggested that it may be converted to flats but that seems unlikely as there is only natural light from these windows. Others, nattering on the West Sussex County Times pages, are after a Lidl or Aldi and are therefore showing a lack of ambition for the town. Perhaps Teso could open yet another shop in Horsham; it has to be a least a month now since they last opened one.
