Economy Shop Sale Dates (through June 2015)

Date: Saturday, May 30th - Saturday, June 13th, 2015
Location: The Economy Shop

103 S. Grove, Oak Park IL

The Economy Shop isn’t your everyday thrift store. They are an event…with 15 departments…spanning 3 floors…loaded with eco-friendly, vintage and brand new treasures.

Since 1919, local volunteers have sorted, shelved and sold a variety of donated merchandise at The Economy Shop for the benefit of local charities. Each charity provides volunteers for a given department at The Economy Shop on Sale Days. Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry has been selected to be one of the lucky beneficiaries! That means the Food Pantry will receive a portion of The Economy Shops sales proceeds in exchange of providing volunteers. The Food Pantry’s department is Men’s Casual Wear, but all the charities split the proceeds from the entire store. So shop all over!

Sale Dates
Saturday 5/30: 9am - 3pm

Thursday 6/4: 9am - 3pm
Saturday 6/13: 9am - 3pm

Mark your calendars and happy shopping!
