Celebrating 10 Years of Lush Ipswich

Lush Ipswich open with new look

On Wednesday, 24th August 2022 at 10am, fresh handmade cosmetics brand Lush will reveal the new look of its Ipswich shop. Originally opened in November 2012, the shop celebrates 10 years of Lush Ipswich on the high street with a new shop design and will offer activities for their community and customers.

We’re very excited to be cementing ourselves as a figurehead of the Ipswich high street. Our new look shop comes just ahead of our store’s 10th birthday in November – A perfect time to help make lots of Christmas (and Halloween!) wishes come true for 2022. Our whole team look forward to throwing open the doors very soon!

Sarah Hiorns, Lush Ipswich Shop Manager

Continuing to invest in the high street

Lush is committed to continuing investment in the high streets and providing innovation to showcase the 5* customer service experience. In 2022 Lush will make a retail investment approximately £7.6m for new shops, relocations and refits across the UK&I and Europe.
The Ipswich retail experience highlights categories of iconic Lush inventions from the 1980s including the shampoo bar and the bath bomb, as well as a section with an array of ethical gifts and Knot Wraps. Services, such as bespoke Lush skincare consultations or booking a popular Lush Party will be available in the shop.

Reducing, Reusing, Recycling

As part of Lush’s mission to ‘Leave the world Lusher than we found it’, the main focus of the design is repurposing furniture. Alongside some new furniture produced from ethically sourced and durable materials, existing furniture from the previous store will be repurposed and refinished to give the materials a new lease of life. This is reducing the environmental impact and any waste of the shop refit process. 

When fitting their shops, Lush utilise the same values they do when sourcing ingredients for their products.

Here at Lush Ipswich, we celebrate 10 years of stories and memories that have shaped us and our products. We wanted to create a place customers could explore and indulge in these stories, as well as a place to create their own ones. With this new store refit, we celebrate the community we have been part of for a decade, as well as bringing people together through a flexible and inviting space and meeting our fantastic in-store team.

Bring It Back

Lush Ipswich is not only looking forward to welcoming their customers back, but also welcoming their plastic packaging back! As part of Lush’s mission to ‘Leave the world Lusher than we found it’, Lush shops are inviting customers to bring back any full-sized Lush plastic packaging to their local Lush shop to be recycled as part of their fresh new packaging returns scheme, Bring It Back.

For each plastic Lush item returned, customers will receive a 50p deposit to spend on their Lush basket that day.
