The store, which was located in the Britten Centre, said decreased footfall was the reason for it shutting its doors.

In a statement on Facebook, the store said: "After very long and tearful talks we have decided to close. We're so sorry to let our customers down but we have to do what's right.

"We love you all and can't thank you enough for your continued support over the last seven years from our humble beginning back on the markets to where we are today."

It is the second store to announce its closure this month.

A spokesperson for the store added: "Don't forget to shop local, and it won't be the last you see of us in one way or another."
