The charity already have one shop on Felixstowe Road but a second store is set to open on March 8 on Meredith Road.

The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) will be opening a new charity shop in Ipswich next month.

Sarah Throssell, EACH shop acquisition manager, said: “We’re delighted plans are now well under way to extend our retail offering in Ipswich.

“The signs are going up on the new premises this week and we hope lots of people will recognise the EACH brand from our other shop in Felixstowe Road, as well as the work we do in the community.

“The shop will trade six days a week from Monday to Saturday and there will be lots of clothing, toys and books available, including plenty for kids, with everything priced £3 or less.”

EACH is now looking for new stock for the store including clothing, bric-a-brac, toys, and books.

Items can be dropped off at the store from February 26.
