Be prepared for it to be dingy, but there are great finds!\r
Wear tights or leggings so you can try pants and skirts on.

I here there are more underpaid workers in the back room of the second floor of this store. Lots of illegals or workers making under minimum wages between 7hr or 7.50hr and no union. The store rakes in millions and the directors are

On Friday Oct. 14, 2011, between 12pm and 1:30pm, at the Salvation Army Thrift Store 2270 N Clybourn Ave, my Honda Civic was broken into in the parking lot. After leaving the lot I noticed that the coin compartment door was broken off

I am a frequent shopper at Salvation Army Thrift Stores, particularly Clybourn and North Avenue and Karlov. I have witnessed managers and cashiers allow family members to purchase two full carts of clothing and shoes for $25! The managers

I'm a big thrift store shopper. So, while visiting Chicago, I had to check this place out. On the positive side, there is a huge selection - almost too much of one. The clothing racks are so jammed that you can easily miss something great.

I have a flexible schedule, so do most of my shopping weekdays. I went on Cyber Monday - part of the Thanksgiving day weekend, when it was probably busier than usual, but not terribly crowded.

I literally found every specific item I was

I love this store! I've been to a lot of thrift stores and this has the best prices and a lot of good clothes/shoes.

I regularly find long-sleeve silk sweaters from Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Gap for $4-5. And Gap jeans can be gotten for $6. Lots of outside jackets and coats for $8 and up - many name brands but those may cost you $12-$15.

There's no place to try on the clothes but for these prices you can afford to make a few mistakes and still come out way ahead... The aisles are close together and the store can get crowded with shopping carts.

The upstairs is where you'll find housewares which is generally a shambles but you'll also fine decent old electronics and shoes - it's worth a look to go up!

Definitely check out this store!

I was thrilled to find a thrift store with thrifty prices. It seems that the majority of used clothing stores lately think that their worn Kohl's pants are worth more then they are at Kohl's on one of their sale days..Although with a little creativity you can try on clothes under a long wide garment (from the racks), the only reason I won't give this store five stars is the lack of fitting rooms.Treasures galore and great name brands. Put a few hours to the side to give this store a good run over. There is tons of stuff!!!

I went to the Clybourn store which stays open until 9-9:30pm. The location is not great for those without a car, unless you live in the area, since at least one CTA transfer is required. It is also tucked away off the street in an odd intersection of Clybourn Fullerton & Ashland. I went with an open mind, so I was neither disappointed nor suprised. The location has two full floors, the first floor is mostly clothing, the second is housewares, furniture, kids clothes and shoes. Despite the location, the place draws a crowd, but it is still comfortable enough to browse.

Floor 1 - The clothing Jungle. Upon entering, be prepared for the smell of old, dusty clothing... you might want to wear gloves. I am sure they do not wash anything. Still, there is tons and tons of clothing to look through.. many name brands still in good condition. There are even nice enough to sort stuff by colors & types. If you dont mind an intense search, you will come up with many great finds. Also note the lighting is not great, so check very carefully for stains & holes before buying. They also have a bunch of furniture sitting outside the store... but it was cold and raining so I didnt bother to browse.

Floor 2 - Natural Disaster. This floor looks like the aftermath of a hurricane. Definite quantity, but almost impossible to browse through since the shelves are stacked with layers of random stuff. Pricing has no logic either. Some items are priced almost at retail, while others are dirt cheap. Watch out for broken glass on the floor, there is always something falling off the shelves and breaking... but not much effort is made to clean it up.

Overall, great finds provided you bring protective gear, and you know which prices not to pay. Disorganized atmosphere, but a fun counter culture of families, sunday market resalers, thrift store & vintage addicts, and occasional early release mental patient all looking for a bargin.

This is the main facility in chicago, where they take items and distribute them. Lots of good quality thrifting. Only problem with this site is that it is on two floors, and the steps are quite steep. I did not feel very comfortable going to the second floor carrying my baby daughter.
