The shop, which sits between Kierran's Home Store and GY Shawarma, is described by Auction House East Anglia as "a prominent town centre shop which is now vacant and ready for immediate occupation".

The property has planning permission to convert the upper floors into two self contained apartments "which would add significant investment income," according to the listing.

The property has a ground floor commercial area with side office and toilet. The first and second floors have a separate side access and have received planning approval for residential development. At present, the upper floors provide basic storage.

It had been up for auction last month.
