The YMCA charity shop in Diss has announced it is closing due to a drop in sales and furniture donations.
Staff confirmed the premises, on Mere Street, will continue to take donations up until its closing date on December 2.
The store has been open for nearly four years and has been accepting donations of clothes, furniture and household items.
Kelly Harris, assistant manager at the shop said: 'The furniture donations have diminished quite a lot, to the point where we have only had one major furniture delivery in the past two weeks.
'We have been known to have four to five sofas and a couple of beds and chest of drawers and have been chock-a-block where you can hardly move.'

The closure has come after the store was not reaching it's target.
Miss Harris added: 'We are the only one that takes furniture and for me personally, I think it is a loss because Diss does need a slightly cheaper charity shop.'
