Norwich City is closing its independent travel shop, Travel Norwich City, due to the tough economic climate.
Friday will be the last day of trading for the enterprise that opened in 2000, and has operated “profitably” during its nine years.
However the club announced on Monday the difficult trading conditions currently being experienced in retail led to the decision, although it is preparing to announce a new partnership with Thomas Cook.
Norwich City chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “In the recent worsening economic climate it has increasingly proved very difficult to sustain a profitable business model for Travel Norwich City and with regret we have had to close the shop.
“My sincere thanks go out to all of the hard-working TNC staff who have been employed in the shop here at Carrow Road over the years.
