Shoreham’s shops have taken a bit of a beating in recent months. The high cost of living leads to an even higher cost of trading for small businesses, and we’ve seen a number of empty units around the streets of Shoreham.
Well, three units are either about to open, or have already re-opened. Here’s what’s coming soon:
Coming Soon: Clubhouse Coffee
The old Artisan unit by Sunshine Nursery and Tarmount Studios (which for those with longer memories was Nice Slice before that…) is reopening in the next few weeks as Clubhouse Coffee.
Refurb works are well underway, and it’s looking very different:
It's nice to see this unit reopening.

Coming Soon: Slipped Discs
Just a few weeks ago, the much loved Neighbourhood Store moved out of its original unit on the corner of Church Street. Well, it’s not staying empty for long. It’ll shortly be replaced by a record shop:
If the logo looks familiar, it’s because the shop is a new branch of Slipped Discs from Steyning, which started trading in Cobblestone Walk, before opening their own shop. This will be their second branch.

Reopened: Neighbourhood Store
