Staff at the Co-op rebutted rumours that the Hangleton branch had closed for good today (Monday 9 February).
The shelves at the store in The Parade, Hangleton Road, Hove, had been emptying over the past few days.
And the branch closed its doors early this morning (Monday 9 February) – but only for a refit.
Staff said that the store was due to re-open on Friday week (20 February).
Near by, on the other side of the Grenadier pub, a thief made off with the Sunday supplements from the Tesco, in West Way, before it opened yesterday, denting newspaper sales for the day.
