King’s Lynn’s town centre branch of Iceland is to close after 30 years of trading.

The frozen food shop in the Vancouver Quarter, will close on January 18.

Centre manager Alistair Cox said it was a shame to see Iceland close after so many years but assured the centre’s leasing agents were working hard to attract both independent and national names to the town.

He said: “Iceland are leaving at a time when the Vancouver Quarter remains buoyant with good footfall – a 2.4 per cent rise in October alone, which is far stronger than the 6.1 per cent drop for the eastern region as a whole in the same period.”

On Wednesday, the Vancouver Quarter saw Argos open in part of the Sainsbury’s store after relocating from New Conduit Street.

• Independent cycling shop Pedal Revolution, at North Lynn Industrial Estate closed on Saturday after two years of trading. Owner Neil Turner said he took the decision to close due to “personal reasons”.
