The owners of a new clothing store are hoping to be part of a new "era" in Ipswich town centre as they prepare for opening day. 

Threads for All is setting up shop in a vacant unit in The Walk and will offer a wide range of affordable gender-neutral, unisex and children's clothes.

There will also be homeware, furniture as well as products made by local creators in store. 

Founders Will Hamer and Jenny Needham said the store was born out of a growing frustration they felt by working for others and also wantws to do something about the empty units in Ipswich.

Jenny said: "We believe that Ipswich is at the beginning of a new era and we think that things are going to get better and better for the town.

"We wanted to be brave and take the step.

"The Walk has real character, it's got independent shops here already and it connects two main high streets in Ipswich.

"We want it to have as much life and presence and footfall as The Saints have already created.

"We are in good company here."

The shop is set to stock clothing which rather than being split into men and women's sections, will be all on one clothes rail, separated by sizing.

The shop will have changing rooms too and will be split across two storeys.

The ground floor will have clothes, while the second floor will stock homeware, furniture and uniquely, items that are produced and made by local creators who are able to sell their work through the shop.

Jenny continued: "There will be something for everyone. We will constantly update the businesses we work with and sell the products of so the shop will be changing consistently."

The shop is hoping to be open mid-July, with the company website already up and running and people are able to buy through that already.
