A national retailer is due to close one of their stores in Suffolk later this year in a blow to the High Street.

WHSmith, on Market Hill, Sudbury, will shut its doors in June, at the end of the lease expiry, due to being unable to continue trading viably from the location.

A spokesperson stated the company remains in discussion with the Post Office, who trade out of the store.

They said: "We are currently in discussion with Post Office Limited so they have time to find a suitable franchise partner to ensure continuity of Post Office services within the town.

"We remain very thankful to both our store colleagues and customers for their support.”

A spokesperson for the Post Office said that the operator for the store had resigned.

"The operator for Sudbury Post Office has resigned and the WHSmith store is due to close in June. We know how important a Post Office is to a community," a statement said.

"The vacancy has been advertised as we want to provide Post Office services in the town centre. We have an interested applicant."
