The Esprit shop in Chapelfield shopping centre is currently holding a closing down sale, and customers are being told the store will shut on March 24.

Meanwhile shoppers can look forward to lingerie brand Boux Avenue opening up a new shop in Chapelfield.

Boux Avenue, which sells nightwear, lingerie and swimwear, is due to open its shop in Chapelfield in April, and the chain currently has eight other stores across the country.

Esprit will continue to have an outlet at Jarrold in Norwich.
