I've no idea, but you have to wonder why the shop was opened in the first place. Lewes isn't short of shops selling overpriced kitchenware and to add a smaller one with a limited range, in a poor location, suggests that they hadn't done their research.

Lets hope it re-opens as a coffee shop. Thats just what the town needs, another coffee shop....
...or maybe it will be the home to the mooted Dinosaur Museum that someone suggested was just what the town needed....
Perish the thought that whatever it becomes might sell something affordable and useful, that isn't already available form any number of other outlets in town, and thus generate sufficient footfall to keep it open...

Thanks for all the comments. The notice in the window states what is happening: a takeaway healthy salad bar is opening in the back of the shop on Tuesday 9th September, run by Tina Duebert who sells at the Friday market and runs nutrition courses already in the shop (and other venues around Lewes). More on this in Viva Lewes and coming up on our respective websites. Tina will be using items that we sell for her preparation which fits in with our practice of testing the goods we stock.
Regarding Living Kitchen as a retailer of kitchenware, it is very competitively priced, with the power of independent buying (i.e. not controlled centrally like the bigger chains), allowing quick reaction to sale goods from suppliers, which are then passed on to our growing numbers of very loyal customers. The 'limited' range is actually well thought through - to save the customer the bother we do the hard work of trawling and testing to get the best quality/value available so people can buy with confidence. It's a more personal service and our customers like it. Hope to see you all there soon.
Best wishes
Collette, owner of Living Kitchen.

P.S. we also run many food related classes and workshops. Details on website.

Thanks for the clarification Collette, takeaway salad bar sounds like a good addition. I fear far too many would have diversified by adding yet another "coffee shop".
Good luck with the refit and re-opening.

You are very welcome and thanks - it's mayhem in there at the moment, but we'll get there by Tuesday! Hope you'll drop by sometime to try Tina's yummy food!

Even painting one wall dark will make a drastic improvement to draw the wall in toward the room’s core. Some people even prefer to paint the ceiling a darker shade than the walls as well.
