The future of Market Gates Shopping Centre has been secured, as it was bought for £28m.
A group called Ellandi has bought the 216,000sq ft Great Yarmouth centre from administrators at Deloitte.
Refurbished in 2008, Market Gates is anchored by Debenhams, New Look and Wilkinsons.
It had formerly been owned by Miller Group.
The new buyers are headed by Mark Robinson and Morgan Garfield, and the pair have raised a £130m fund to buy retail properties.

'The fund is structured in order to have the flexibility to attract further investors in due course.
'The Ellandi Retail Fund is actively pursuing additional acquisition opportunities and we are also continuing to build our relationship with established and new equity partners.
'We deliberately target convenience and value orientated shopping which we feel is better insulated from the threat of the internet due to the balance of spend and delivery charge.'
