Zest reinvents the traditional charity shop

At our stores, you'll find a collection of stylish second-hand clothing from some of your favourite brands and designers alongside trendy homeware, gifts and accessories.

We are also committed to being eco-friendly and sustainable.

At our Ipswich store, we stock Fill - selling cleaning products which are vegan, cruelty free, have no harsh chemicals and are biodegradable. Customers can either buy a Fill glass bottle or bring their own container to fill up with laundry and household cleaning products.


We have two stores in:

Ipswich, on Queen St, open Monday to Saturday, 9am - 5pm.

 Colchester, on St Nicholas Passage, Wednesday to Saturday, 9am - 5pm.
