A city centre spa and a Thai restaurant have closed after running into financial difficulties.
Directors of Thai Wellbeing and The Baan Phraya Thai restaurant – both on Red Lion Street, Norwich – decided to shut down the businesses when a restructure failed to boost sales.
Insolvency practitioners Parker Andrews have struck a deal to sell the customer database of the spa to The Cottage Beauty Salon on Timberhill.
Jamie Playford, director at Parker Andrews, said: 'The business underwent a restructure, following which the director was monitoring trading closely.
'Unfortunately, targets were not met, and so the director has taken the decision that the business should close. A sale of the customer database was achieved in a short timescale and we are pleased that the buyer was able to act quickly to secure this sale.'
