Are even more businesses looking to exit Burgess Hill?
While searching for the rental prices for the vacant premises in the town centre, we found a whole list of shops that are going to exit the town or perhaps looking to renegotiate their leases.
If the website is up-to-date, then we *could* see the departure of.... Gerzoo Coffee, Millets, Cover Up, Holdall 47, Burgess Appliances.
