"We have made the very difficult decision to leave Ipswich and relocate as well as expand into different territory,” the post said.

Urban Pantry will be moving its cafe to Middle Road, Greenbank.

Facebook commenters left well wishes for the business while others acknowledged the tough times in the Ipswich CBD.

"It's the trend in town for a reason and totally sad, but of course we'd rather see your business survive in another capacity than not carry on because you can't do it in Ipswich. Wishing you all the best,” Loretta Matthews said.
