Are even more businesses looking to exit Burgess Hill?
Andrew France and CoWhile 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.

Visit: http://www.andrew-france.com/property_search_allcommercial.php and tick the Burgess Hill box in the left-hand menu to see all the commerical buildings currently available.
