Since the store cannot be open during this time we are moving products online to our website and offering shipping options or curb side pickup via scheduled times. We are also offering online gift cards that can be used online or in store once we open. In our store we offer a great range of products. But during shelter in place we are offering low cost clothing and housewares.
We are a non profit thrift store with three employees. We generally have more than 40 volunteers throughout the year from the surrounding community. We provide a supportive work environment for individuals out of work and recovering from workers compensation incidents, those doing court mandated community service hours, formerly incarcerated individuals, and Chicago summer youth program participants. The staff engage in training and support of these individuals while managing the operations of running a neighborhood thrift store. We won a best Community Minded Organization from our local chamber of commerce last year and have twice been voted best thrift store in our neighborhood.
