Friendship Circle - ZABS Place
ZABS Place is an eclectic resale shop & employment training center for young adults with special needs run by the Friendship Circle of Charlotte. We aim to create a customer-centric atmosphere with a diverse assortment of quality resale merchandise and one-of-a-kind creations, made by local young adults with special needs, all with thrift shop prices.
Our product lines will include: clothing, furniture, books, and home décor. Through careful location selection we will open in an area with easy access to public transportation and heavy foot traffic. Our store layout will be both handicap-accessible and visually warm and inviting to create an environment that encourages customers to look around and explore, ultimately increasing sales.
ZABS Place will also serve as a stepping stone to future employment opportunities at community businesses, utilizing skills developed and honed during employment with us.
