Norfolk could lose more shops before Christmas, after a women’s fashion retailer has announced it is to close 30 under-performing sites in the coming weeks.
Around 240 jobs are now at risk at Bonmarche, which entered administration just over a month ago.
Norwich's Bonmarche in St Stephens Street has already begun a closing down sale, however the other stores around Norfolk could now also be in the firing line.

"We deeply regret that, as part of the administration process, 30 stores will close and staff may be made redundant," said administrator Tony Wright, from FRP Advisory.
The remaining 285 stores will continue to trade, but will also be kept under review, and their future cannot be guaranteed.
It is understood that sister brand Peacocks is in talks with administrators about buying out the brand.
