Krusty Loaf bakery, on Upper Market Place, will shut its doors at the end of September.

And shoppers will no longer be able to visit the Scope charity shop on Miller’s Walk, which also closed during the month.

Krusty Loaf which also stocks wholesale bakery products at its other premises on Wyman’s Way, Fakenham, and operates another shop in Holt, will cease trading in Upper Market Place, Fakenham on Saturday, September 30.

The family business is run by two brothers, and has been operating in Norfolk for more than 27 years.

In a statement to their customers, the owners said: “I would like to thank all our customers for their continued support and apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of the closure.”

They went on to say that if customers have any enquiries regarding where to purchase Krusty Loaf’s products in the future, they should directly contact the Wyman’s Way premises.

Scope charity shop, which closed earlier in the month is a branch of the national disability charity, Scope, which aims to raise awareness of the issues facing people with disabilities.

Founded in 1952, they campaign to change attitudes towards disabilities within society.

The charity states that their purpose is to drive “change across society so that disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else”.

In a statement to customers they said: “Unfortunately, our Fakenham shop is now closed.

“We would like to say thank you for your ongoing support of our shop.

“Scope has been able to provide support, information, and advice to disabled people and their families both in Norfolk and across the country.”

They added: “We would like to encourage you to visit our neighbouring Norwich shop who have a selection of furniture items for sale too.”

A sign in the shop window read: “Thank you for the last 25 years.”
