Workers are readying the new Lush store on Tavern Street.

Workers are readying the new Lush store on Tavern Street.


SHOPFITTERS are putting the final touches to the new Lush store due to open in Ipswich next week - and the news has excited our readers.

Via our Facebook page, we asked: Will the latest addition to Ipswich town centre bring in the shoppers?

Joseph Mulligan was the first to respond and said: “What’s the latest addition to Ipswich town centre?”

In response, Michelle Riseborough said: “Lush is the name of the store we are getting! Going into the old orange store on Tavern Street.”

Lou Mills said: “I doubt it, I suppose it would be OK if you have lots of spare cash to buy the expensive items in this shop..... I will stick to Dove.”

But Michelle explained: “Stuff I buy from there lasts longer than other items so works out cheaper in long run.”

Julie Stammers added: “It’s quite expensive but I would probably use it if had to buy a gift, doubt make much difference to town centre tho!”

Agreeing, JoAnne Nolan said: “I love the stuff from Lush so am happy to read one is opening in town. Anyone know when?”

Another fan of Lush is Karen Cook, who said: “I have been waiting for years for Lush to come here I love all their products and travel miles to get to one or buy on line. They open on the 23rd Nov.”

  • Will this one shop bring people into the town? I very much doubt it! I for one will avoid it as the smell around Lush shops is far too strong for me, can't stand the place!

  • Whoopdee doo. Can't imagine it will change the fortunes of a dying town centre. What Ipswich lacks is mobile phone shops, coffee shops and we could really benefit from a few Tesco Express stores.....

  • Love Lush. I can't wait. No nasty additives in their products, & the extra cost is worth it for good quality.
