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.

It means the former Thomas Cook travel shop, which was rescued by Hays Travel in September, will have to make other arrangements in order to continue serving its loyal customer base.

A spokesman for Hays said: "We are very pleased with the performance of our Great Yarmouth shop and will be saddened to move from this location.

"We are using best endeavours to find an alternative location and this may mean we operate from temporary premises until a permanent high street location is prepared.
