A charity shop warehouse is closing its doors next year due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing cost of living crisis. 

The Age UK Furniture and More store in Dereham's Yaxham Road will close for the final time in February.

The warehouse-style shop sells furniture, white goods and electricals among other products.

In a statement, Age UK said: "Many retail outlets struggled to recover from the impact that COVID-19 had on the retail industry and ongoing inflation has continued to impact the retail sector.

"Consumers are also being more mindful of managing their spending, the effects of which are felt severely for non-essential retail.

"We are incredibly proud of our retail team - staff and volunteers alike - who have worked incredibly hard in the local community."

The charity also thanked its customers who "supported not just our store but our vision to ensure older people live well in Norfolk".
