What is ZABS Place?
ZABS Place is an upscale thrift boutique & employment training center for young adults with special needs or as we like to say «Special Talents.»
We’re 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 a warm and friendly environment.
ZABS Place also serves as a stepping stone to future employment opportunities at community businesses, utilizing skills developed and honed during employment with us.
