An independent coffee shop in Bury St Edmunds will open its doors for the last time on Friday, July 31.

Guat’s Up! in Guildhall Street reopened for takeaways at the end of June, but business owner Rob Butterworth told customers on social media he had taken the decision not to renew the lease, which expires in the next few months.

“My efforts will now be focused on the Butterworth & Son roastery and tea business and highlighting the products we offer through existing outlets throughout East Anglia and beyond.”
