Fred. Olsen Travel has opened a branch in Worthing, Sussex, its 19th in the UK.
Business Development Manager for Sussex Trevor Ridler said Worthing was a ‘no brainer’, local news service Sussex Express reported.
“It ticked every box,” he said.
“The consensus was Worthing would be perfect,” Trevor explained.
“There was a fantastic national article saying Worthing ‘is the place to move to’, as it’s up and coming.
“It has the right clientele, with like-minded people for the type of products we sell. Worthing gives the opportunity to expand in places like Lancing and Hove.”
The store will be managed by Kelly Virgo, working alongside another member of staff five days a week. The company is currently recruiting for a third person.
Trevor added: “Until we get staffing sorted out, we will close on Saturdays. We will go to six days a week at the beginning of January.”
