Staff including the store manager were called in to fashion store Outfit in Norwich's Riverside to clear stock.
It is believed around 25 staff are losing their jobs at the branch of Outfit, owned by the Arcadia Group, which went into administration in November.
Outfit has around 70 stores nationwide offering shopping all under one roof for Arcadia's other brands such as Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topman, Topshop and Wallis.
Staff at the Norwich Riverside branch were told they would be losing their jobs by conference call and the store, currently closed because of coronavirus, needed to be cleared. Stock was being sent back to head office.
It is not known yet whether the Outfit stores in Great Yarmouth and King's Lynn are also to close down permanently.
