A popular Norwich record shop is to close after more than 30 years in the city.
Prelude Records in St Giles Street will open its doors for the final time on March 30, its owner, Andrew Cane, has announced.
Mr Cane said: 'It is with deep sadness that we have to inform our many loyal customers that Prelude Records will close its shop for the final time on 30th March 2017.
'We have explored every possible avenue to avoid this, but increasing costs and huge changes in the record industry sadly have made closure inevitable.'
Mr Cane said the shop would continue to receive new releases and process customer orders as normal over the next few weeks.
