A coffee shop is celebrating its opening day with free drinks.

Trading Post is marking the first day of its new site in Brighton by offering free coffees for all of its customers tomorrow.

The family-run coffee roasters are also offering cut-price food to mark the opening of its eighth store in Sussex.

Ryan Deol, Trading Post’s head of wholesale, said: "As we gear up for the grand opening of Trading Post on Western Road, Brighton, we'd like to say a big thank you to our amazing community.

“Your support since our launch in 2017 has fuelled everything we do. We stand proud as an independent, family-run coffee roaster, showcasing local craftsmanship with passion.

"We look forward to welcoming people tomorrow for our opening day, and as a thank-you to the community, coffee is on the house.”

Trading Post will be taking over the Western Road site on the corner of Norfolk Square after Small Batch coffee closed their shop on the site last year.

Small Batch announced the closure in March 2023 as it decided to close three of its stores.

This will be Trading Post's fifth shop in Brighton with other stores in Stroudley Road, Sydney Street, Ship Street and Kensington Gardens.

As well as its Brighton branches, Trading Post has stores in Cliffe High Street, Lewes, and in South Street, Chichester.

The brand also has a coffee van which is usually outside Churchill Square shopping centre.

Trading Post is also planning on opening a shop in Worthing in the Grade II listed building in Montague Street.

A spokeswoman for the coffee roasters previously said on Facebook: "Our team has been working diligently to prepare the first site on Western Road, and we can’t wait to open our doors and serve the local community some freshly roasted artisan coffee and brunch."

Trading Post opened their first store in Ship Street in January 2017.

The coffee roasters say they pride themselves on being an “independent, family-run business, committed to supporting community projects in the local area”.

Trading Post in Western Road will open tomorrow at 7.30am.
