Planet Blue set to open up sister store in the Town Centre in time for Christmas!

Ipswich Town’s official retail store Planet Blue will soon be even more accessible this Christmas, with the introduction of a new pop-up store, to be opened in Tavern Street, Ipswich.

The store, which is due to open imminently, will be stocking all your favourite Ipswich Town essentials as well as some heavily reduced clearance items, just in time for the big Christmas rush.

Speaking to the official website, Town’s retail manager Lee Hyde told us: “The town centre presence is something we’ve missed since closing the Buttermarket store; however this was simply not working as a commercially viable option in the location we were in.”

Lee continued: “The Christmas pop-up store gives us an excellent opportunity to make the retail range more accessible to our fans in the most important shopping weeks of the calendar year.”

Planet Blue’s new store will stock the majority of the ever expanding retail range, from the latest Home & Away replica shirts, to the brand new Essentials, SuperBlues, Fashion and SP78 leisurewear ranges. We’ll also be able to offer personalisation of replica kit and benchwear training kit with our in-store shirt printing facility. We’ll even have the latest Ipswich Town Christmas themed products and the long awaited Onesie’s will be making a big appearance in early December!

The store, which is based in the former Specsavers unit on Tavern Street, will stay open until 9pm on a Thursday to coincide with the late night Christmas Shopping in Ipswich.

The opening hours of the new store are as follows:-

Monday – Wednesday                    09:00 – 17:30

Thursday                                         09:00 – 21:00

Friday – Saturday                            09:00 – 17:30

Sunday                                            10:30 – 16:30


Specific Christmas week hours are as follows:-


Monday 24th December                 09:00 – 17:30

Tuesday 25th December                 CLOSED

Wednesday 26th December           10:30 – 16:30

Thursday 27th December 09:00 – 17:30

Friday 28th December                     09:00 – 17:30


The store will close on Friday 28th December. Please note, unfortunately due to the nature of the pop-up store it will only be selling retail products. Ticket sales will continue from the Planet Blue store at the stadium, via the ticket office telesales line or online via the Club website.
