Like many towns up and down the UK, Lowestoft is emerging from the economic and social effects felt as a result of the Covid pandemic.

While many empty units now lie up and down Lowestoft's high street, the easing of lockdown restrictions has allowed more businesses to launch in the town.

Here are five that have launched in the town this summer which are worth checking out.

A family-run business that puts customer service at the heart of everything it does has had a "brilliant response" since opening its doors in April.

After almost a year of renovations, a brand new showroom opened on the High Street in Lowestoft in April as Moyles Carpets and Flooring unveiled its extensive range of high-quality products for customers to see.


It is one of the largest outdoor furniture superstores in Suffolk and its showroom opened up in Lowestoft back in April.

Located on Suffolk Road at the former Kerry's store, it sells garden furniture, corner groups, sofa sets, sun loungers, day beds and lots more.
