A trendy shoe shop chain is the latest store to close its doors in Ipswich - as it is revealed there are more than 100 shop units currently empty in the town.

tReds, in Westgate Street next to Claire's Accessories, has shut up shop and is currently being refitted, however it is not yet known what will replace it.

However, other businesses continue to find a home in the town, with big chains such as Aldi, Home Bargains and B&M opening during this year.

It has been a turbulent year for tReds, which collapsed into administration in January citing 'challenges' for the retail sector.

However, in February it was bought by New Gray Ltd, saving the Weymouth-based company's 21 stores across the UK and its online business.
