It's been a fixture in Aylsham for more than 100 years, but a newsagent and bookshop is downsizing and moving to a smaller building along the Market Place.
But Barnwell's, which has been at the same premises since 1908, will have to change the spelling of a certain word before it re-opens.
Stationery is spelt as stationary, which means not moving, on the new building.
Gwen Wright, who has run the shop for about 48 years, said: 'We will be trading from 31, Market Place from February 4. No 33, Market Place is now up for let.
'We are downsizing and cutting some of our product lines, including toys, books and photo frames/albums. But we will still do newspapers and magazines, stationery, cards and art. And we will carry on doing home deliveries.'
