The fashion retailer Jack Wills closed many of its stores across East Anglia - including Southwold, Aldeburgh and Ipswich in Suffolk. It recently announced it was also closing its main store in Norwich.

The Frasers Group - headed up by Sports Direct's Mike Ashley - closed down 31 Jack Wills stores nationwide last year. This followed the firm rescuing the British retailer from administration in 2019.

However, the Jack Wills store in Burnham Market's main Market Place - said to be one of the most profitable in the country - remains open.

Now an apartment is for sale above the shop with three bedrooms, a garden and parking.

This is for sale leasehold and does not include the Jack Wills ground floor shop.

"I've heard Jack Wills in Burnham Market is one of the most profitable stores in the country."
