A major retailer in Eastbourne is set to close the doors of its town centre store after Christmas.

Argos on Terminus Road will close in January after the company said it would not renew the store’s lease.

It is unclear if staff will be able to transfer to the retailer’s second store in Admiral Retail Park on Lottbridge Drove.

A spokesman for Argos said, “Following a consultation with staff, we can confirm the Argos store on Terminus Road will be closing on January 8 2016 following the expiry of the store’s lease.

“Staff have been informed and we will be working with them over the next few weeks to identify alternative employment opportunities.”
