The final touches are being made to a popular convenience store and post office as part of a £250,000 refurbishment.
West Runton Village Store, near Sheringham, which is owned by husband and wife Andrea and Stuart Loakes, was closed for several weeks while the work was carried out.
It's now back in business and Mr Loakes said: 'We are nearly there. We're just having CCTV cameras fitted inside and outside the store, and then the first phase will be finished.
'We are well chuffed how it's gone and we have had some fantastic customer feedback. We've got a fresher, more modern store.'
The store has been upgraded with modern fridges and LED lighting.

And then, in about two months' time, they will be getting another extension to the shop.
