A shop in Great Yarmouth is in new hands after the retirement of the previous owner who had been running it for 20 years. 

The Londis store, located in St Peter's Road, had been owned and operated by Justin Fenn for the last two decades and he "invested a lot of time and effort" into it. 

It has now been sold to Mr Kesavan, a local forecourt operator who intends to build on the existing trade.

"I am also delighted for Mr. Kesavan and confident that with his local knowledge and retail experience he will continue to build on Justin’s great work.”

Lawrence Roberts, from Christie Finance, added: "Mr Kesavan has plans to put his stamp on the business after the previous owner’s input and I believe he will be a great success."
