The building occupied by a major Ipswich bookshop has been listed for rent – but the store is hoping to stay where it is.
The premises occupied by Waterstones in Butter Market has been listed for let by Roche Surveyors, a Norwich firm.
The advert describes the building as a four floor building with 8,581 sq ft of shop floor space.
It also describes the building as having the potential to become a restaurant but thus would require a change of use application.
A Waterstones spokeswoman denied that the shop was going anywhere and no jobs were at risk.
