A discount chain will be opening in a former Wilko store this month.

In January, The Original Factory Shop announced it would be bringing a new branch to Gorleston.

It can now be revealed that its doors will open in the High Street precinct for the first time on Saturday, May 25.

The shop sells discounted branded products such as fashion, beauty, home furnishings and accessories, electricals, pet supplies and groceries.

It offers discounts of up to 70pc on big brands such as Adidas, Calvin Klein and Michael Kors.

The Original Factory Shop was founded in 1969 and now has more than 180 shops across the UK including 10 in Norfolk.

It opened new branches in Cromer in 2021 and Attleborough in September 2023 but closed its Diss and Fakenham stores early in 2024. 

Its new Gorleston space has been empty since Wilko closed in September after the firm went into administration.

The Gorleston venue will be open from 9am until 6pm, Monday to Saturday, and from 10am until 4pm on Sunday.
