Second Chance Resale – Naperville Location, Hours, Info

second chance resale shop in napervilleSecond Chance Resale Shop is a thrift shop located in Naperville, Il that is owned and operated by Family Shelter Services, an organization that offers help and counseling to victims of domestic violence. Second Chance offers a unique way to support the efforts of Family Shelter Service, while providing residents with a lovely selection of gently used clothing for all sizes and age ranges, household items, linens, fashion accessories, jewelry, antiques, collectibles, and more.

The staff at Second Chance Resale consists of volunteers who donate their time and efforts as a way to help domestic violence victims while giving back to the community. I enjoy browsing through vintage clothing and antiques at local thrift shops, and the first time I walked into Second Chance, I had to walk back outside to make sure I was in the right place. Why? Because the store was so neat, tidy, and well organized that it looked like a small department store instead of a thrift shop. Everything is nicely laid out and easy to find, and you can tell that the people who work there really care about what they are doing.

Aside from offering a well organized selection of gently used items to local residents at a reasonable cost, whenever an individual or family in need who becomes a client of Family Shelter Service needs clothing or other household items in order to get back on their feet, needed items are provided to them at no cost.

Residents can support this store by making purchases or donations of items they no longer use.
