Carluccio’s in Reigate’s High Street is to close on Christmas Eve, the company’s head office has said.
The move follows the Italian restaurant chain’s decision to enter a Company Voluntary Arrangement earlier this year. A spokesperson said in May:
“The majority of our restaurants will be unaffected by this plan and will remain open to serve our guests as normal.
However, we have had to take the very difficult decision to potentially close our Reigate restaurant due to rising business costs and unsustainable rental levels.”
Asked this week about the job ads that have recently featured in the windows, a spokesperson said:
“We will continue to trade up until our closing date on 24th December and therefore are hiring in fixed term and part time roles with the opportunity to transfer to another local site when our lease runs out in late December.”
There’s been other bad news recently for restaurant-goers in Reigate, as across the road Prezzo closed its doors last Saturday.
