The co-owner of a popular second hand shop has confirmed the store will close by the end of the week.
Adam Mcnamara of Shabby Chiq in King Street, Great Yarmouth, has described his disappointment at having to shut his shop due to financial reasons.
He said keeping it open would no longer be financially sustainable.
A clear-out sale started earlier this week with all stock needing to go.
“I am absolutely devastated because I have loved working and owning the shop but it will cost too much money to keep it open,” said Mr Mcnamara.
