The future of the Swarovski store in Buttermarket is in doubt as the unit has been listed as available for lease from January. 

Marketed by Fenn Wright, the two-storey retail unit is advertised online as "available on a new business lease from January 1, 2022".  

The initial rent is listed as £19,750 per year for the property that "forms part of the town centre retail core". 

Swarovski Ipswich is a partner boutique, which means it is run by an independent owner.  

The jewellery shop closed during the Covid-19 lockdowns, with the boutique's social media directing customers to its online store. 

It re-opened on April 12 this year when restrictions lifted. 

Neither Fenn Wright nor Swarovski Ipswich responded to requests for comment.
