In March, 1,200 jobs were put at risk across the country when the giant stationery company fell into administration.

Deloitte were appointed joint administrators and the following month announced 16 branches and 161 jobs would be lost in a wave of store closures as the retailer searched for a new owner.

The firm's Ipswich branch, in Russell Road, survived these first round of store closures in April.

However, last month it closed its doors for the final time.

While signs advertising the store's closure had been in place since late March, management remained tight-lipped about the site's closing date.

The store has now closed down with signs above the entrance and exit stating: "This store is now closed. The management and staff would like to thank you for your custom."

Ipswich town centre will also lose another national retailer later this week when Monsoon closes down its Westgate Street store.
