Mothercare in Ipswich is having a big closing down sale after the baby goods chain fell into administration, shutting all its stores across the UK.
Most of the products at the Copdock interchange store will be discounted as the firm looks to sell all its remaining stock.
The chain, which has been a staple of the high street since 1961, announced earlier this week it would be conducting a phased closure of all 79 of its remaining shops, which has led to 16 employees in Ipswich losing their jobs.
However, shop workers say that more than 40 people work at the Ipswich outlet.
While the sale goes on, Mothercare's website will remain live and discounts will also be available online.
Customers are being encouraged to spend any gift cards as soon as possible.
