The former Jack Wills shop unit in the town is now on the market, just months after the business shut.

Jack Wills announced in July that it would be closing all but one of its Suffolk stores with Aldeburgh and Ipswich’s Tavern Street branches closing permanently.

The former Ipswich store is set to become a Tesco but the Aldeburgh site has remained empty ever since.
