CJ Hole shuts Burnham-On-Sea branch, blaming strong competition

A well-known Burnham-On-Sea estate agent has become a victim of the depressed property market and been forced to close its branch.

The former premises of CJ Hole in Victoria Street, Burnham-On-SeaCJ Hole closed the doors of its Victoria Street premises (shown right) this week and a spokeswoman told Burnham-On-Sea.com that all of its customers' properties had been withdrawn or moved to other agents.

She added: "Our Burnham branch has sadly been forced to close because of difficult trading conditions in the town."

"There's too much competition with so many estate agents and the branch just wasn't paying its way."

"But CJ Hole as a company remains trading and the nearest branch to Burnham is in Weston."

It is understood that the lease of the premises was up for renewal and the company felt it could not justify the cost.

Competition among estate agents in Burnham and Highbridge is strong, with six big companies chasing customers: Abbott & Frost, Gary Berryman, Hutchinson, JH Palmer, Michael Applegate and Saxons.
