ELECTRICAL giant Dixons is hoping to move to a larger store in central Ipswich as part of a drive to improve customer service.

It currently occupies a comparatively small shop unit in Tavern Street.

The new store would also be much nearer a car park - underneath the shopping centre - which is seen as vital for customers who may buy bulky items such as televisions, Computers or DVD players.
