The shops affected by the incident included Russell Smith, New Look and the Sandwich Shop.
A spokesman for UK Power Networks said: “UK Power Networks engineers are working as quickly as safely possible to restore power supplies to eight customers in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe following a fault on a low voltage underground cable.
“We appreciate how difficult it is to be without electricity and apologise to all those affected.”
