Toolstation is to open its first branch in Hailsham on March 28.

It is at 10 Diplocks Way.

Marc Cowley, Chief Investment Officer at Clipstone Investment Management, says: “We are delighted with the off-market deal secured by Max Perkins at SHW to bolster our trade counter terrace in Hailsham. As well as welcoming a great new occupier to the area, this deal provides strong rental evidence for a town that we have believed in for many years.”

Philip MacLauchlan of Adept Consultancy, who advised Toolstation, comments: “We are pleased to secure our first outlet for Toolstation in Hailsham in a perfect, established trade counter location, and look forward to opening the doors to new customers on 28th March.”
