A city centre business is hoping to start a fresh chapter in its story.

Children's clothing shop Coccolino, in Timberhill, is hosting a sale in early December offering discounts on a wide range of products.

The business is hosting the sale to fund a refurbishment of the store which will see a soft play area installed.

The shop is one of the only independent kids' fashion outlets left in the city after Flicka announced it was closing its Dove Street store recently to move solely online.

Coccolino owner Dorothy Thompson, 64, said: “People think other businesses going online will be a good thing for Coccolino, but it will encourage people to solely buy online, resulting in them missing out on face-to-face support.

“Most of our business is done through purchases in-store. It’s important for me to deliver that to customers.”

Some of the store’s best-selling items include fruity knitted hats and reversible jackets, with Dorothy prioritising stock from British brands including Little Shrimp and Kite.

Coccolino has been running for 25 years, moving to their current location from the Norwich Lanes 12 years ago.
