A travel agent facing homelessness after the collapse of retail chain Beales says it is looking for new premises.
Hays Travel, which has its base inside Palmers department store, says it is committed to Great Yarmouth and wants to stay in the town.
Palmers, part of the doomed Beales chain which collapsed at the end of January, is due to close in a few weeks.
Joint administrators KPMG say the doors will shut for good between March 14 and 17.

"We remain committed to the high street and to Great Yarmouth."
