McDonalds is set to close in town centre

A FAST food restaurant will close its doors in Bognor Regis town centre.

The McDonalds in the High Street is set to shut next month with staff offered the option of transferring to the Oldlands Way restaurant.

Grant Copper, the local franchisee, said: “I can confirm that in conjunction with McDonald’s, I have taken the difficult decision to close my restaurant on the High Street in Bognor Regis, on November 1.

“Having traded in the town centre for nearly 30 years, I can assure you that this decision was not taken lightly.

“However, we continually review the position of our restaurants and unfortunately Bognor Regis High Street is no longer a viable location for us.”

Mr Copper thanked the customers who had supported the restaurant and its staff.
