WINGS services for families fleeing domestic violence are funded, in part, by proceeds from our three resale stores. These stores are known for their selection of high-end donated merchandise. Our resale stores stock a selection of high-quality clothing for women, children and men. In addition, our stores offer an excellent array of housewares, accessories and furniture.
WINGS Resale Stores in Niles, Arlington Heights and Schaumburg are operating in accordance with Restore Illinois policies and procedures. We want you to feel safe and comfortable when shopping or donating. We appreciate your patience as we work to make our stores as safe as possible. There will be new sanitization and social distancing policies in place to protect the health and safety of everyone.
Our goal is to ensure that you, your fellow shoppers and our personnel stay safe and healthy during this time.
Our internal policies and procedures are based on the following validated set of public health guidelines:
- CDC Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
- OSHA Occupational Safety and Health Administration
- IDPH Illinois Department of Public Health
- State of Illinois Restore Illinois Plan
