Sainsbury’s new free bus service is set to launch in Billingshurst later this week.
The service will begin on Friday April 17 and will transport customers to the Sainsbury’s store in Horsham whilst conversion works are carried out on the former Budgens store in the village.
The Budgens store was taken over by the national supermarket chain in March and is set to be closed for the next couple of months whilst the work is carried out.
The pick up point for people catching the bus from Billingshurst will be at the car park entrance to the right of the Budgens store.
Customers catching the bus home from Horsham will be asked to show their receipt to prove they have been to the store.
The service will run as stated below (times are taken from the Billingshurst Parish Council website):
