PREZZO at 1 Terminus Buildings , Upperton Road, is closing down.

So too is the Hailsham branch.

Italian restaurant chain Prezzo will close 46 loss-making sites, putting around 810 workers at risk of redundancy.

The closures come after its utility costs rocketed by more than double with reported losses of £22.4million in the year to January 2022.

The cuts, which are part of a broader strategic review, will affect sites where ‘the post-Covid recovery has proved harder than we had hoped’.

Eastbourne and Hailsham are on the list of 46.
