WHSmith has confirmed when one of its Sussex stores will serve its last customer.

The retail chain's shop in Littlehampton High Street will shut for good in June when its lease expires.

It said it had decided to close the store as it was no longer able "to continue to trade viably from this location".

A WHSmith spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that the WHSmith store in Littlehampton will close in June 2021 when our lease expires.

"Unfortunately, we are unable to continue to trade viably from this location and the decision has been taken to close the store as a result of the forthcoming lease expiry.

"As one of the largest supporters of the UK high street, we are disappointed to be losing our presence in Littlehampton and we would like to thank all our customers for their support and for shopping with us.

"We are also extremely grateful for the commitment of our in store colleagues who we will support with this transition."
