One hundred years ago this coming spring, a group of women in Oak Park decided to open the Economy Shop to raise funds for the five local charitable organizations. After World War I ended, many women wanted to continue their service to others and to use their newly acquired business skills. Could these women have imagined, one hundred years later, we would still be operating this enterprise, serving six local charitable organizations? Please shop at one of our upcoming sales to keep their vision going.

In celebration of our centennial, we are going to have monthly contests for our customers, testing their knowledge of the Economy Shop. Do you know how many hours our volunteers actually work? Can you guess the average age of our volunteers? How much money do we make during a sale? If you can answer these & other questions, then be sure to enter each month. Click here for December's contest.
