ZABS Place


Retail Shop

About Us

ZABS Place is an upscale thrift boutique & employment training center for young adults with special needs run by the Friendship Circle of Charlotte. We have chosen a resale shop as our employment medium because it mirrors our goal of revealing hidden potential.

We’ve created 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 at thrift shop prices. Our product lines include: clothing, furniture, books, and home décor.

Located in the heart of downtown Matthews, at 100 N. Trade St., we are in an area with easy access to public transportation and heavy foot traffic. Our store layout is 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 also serves as a stepping stone to future employment opportunities at community businesses, utilizing skills developed and honed during employment with us.
