Carpetright Store In Great Yarmouth To Close

National retailer Carpetright have announced that they will be closing 92 stores across the country, including their shop in Great Yarmouth.

Nationwide 300 jobs are at risk - it is unclear whether workers at the store in Gapton Hall Retail Park will be relocated.

The closures are at stores which are underperforming, with the company struggling to pay high rent costs. 

In recent months, restaurant chain Prezzo and clothing retailer New Look have been forced to make similar closures.
