A menswear retailer near Ipswich’s Buttermarket shopping centre is fully open again after storm damage to underground cables was fixed.
Twist 'N' Shout, in St Stephen's Street, was without power and heat yesterday due to work being done by UK Power Networks.
The problem was caused by Storm Ciara over the weekend.
Shop owner Alan Rayner said: "The customers have been really good. They've messaged me saying they were concerned about the loss of earnings.

Mr Rayner was pleased with the response of UK Power Networks, who responded to his phone call within an hour.
