The high street in Diss will have another two empty shops as after the closure of a mobility scooter business while McColl’s has confirmed it will close in November.
The national chain had already said it had decided not to renew the lease on its premises on Mere Street and has now said the shop will shut on November 15.

The shop is next to the premises of Beactive Mobility which closed this week after 11 years citing high running costs and difficulties with parking. The family-run business, which also has shops in Norwich and Great Yarmouth, sell products for elderly and less-abled customers.
McColl's is one of the most well established shops on Mere Street street selling groceries, alcohol, lottery tickets as well as being one of the last remaining newsagents offering deliveries.
A spokesperson said: "We are saddened to no longer be operating the store in the future and our priority is to support all affected colleagues."
