One Norfolk town's branch of Clarks will avoid closure as the shoe shop chain looks to close some of its poorest performing stores.
After reports that the King's Lynn High Street shop would be closing, a Clarks spokesman confirmed it would remain open.
They said: "At Clarks we continually review all of our stores to ensure that they are the right size and located in the right areas in order to provide the best possible offering and environment to our customers. We can confirm that there are no current plans for our store in King's Lynn."
Clarks said in its full-year results that it is "preparing to take rapid actions to exit the worst-performing sites in as short a timescale as possible".
It is not yet clear how many sites may be impacted and, as a result, how many jobs.
