A former top brand clothing store has gone up for sale in Aldeburgh’s high street.
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.
It is now up for sale with a guide price of £375,000 by agents Clarke and Simpson.

The ground floor accommodation extends to approximately 540 sq feet (50 sqm) whilst the basement, which was previously used by Jack Wills for storage and changing room accommodation, extends to approximately 136 sq feet (13 sqm).
The agents say the building could provide a premises for the purchasers own business or could be suitable for investment purchasers.
