After the announcement that Beales department store is set to close its doors in Lowestoft, the big question remains – what would you like to see as its replacement?
Danny Steel, managing director of Steel & Co Commercial Property Services in Lowestoft, and Lowestoft Vision board member, felt the site would be big enough for an indoor market.
Of the move, Mr Steel said: 'It will certainly be missed.
'I feel it is such a great pity this store is closing after such a long history of being in the town centre, but I am not altogether surprised.
'It is a massive shame, but now we all need to work hard to ensure it does not stay empty and it gives an opportunity for others to come into the town.
