The Perfume Shop in an Ipswich shopping centre has closed its doors while it undergoes an extensive refurbishment.

The chain in Sailmakers shopping centre, which sells a variety of perfumes and aftershaves and has more than 200 stores across the country, was seen to have the shutter down, while the shelves and counter tops were empty during the Easter holidays.

The shop has been taken off of the company's store locator page while work is undertaken to update the shop which is situated on the ground floor of the two-storey shopping centre.

The Perfume Shop Ipswich is due to reopen on Friday, April 19.

This refurbishment comes after the sale of the shopping centre by auction for £3.02m last month.

Other shops in the centre have recently opened, including Bargain Food Warehouse and Big Red Label, along with Just Potatoes – which is opposite The Perfume Shop.
