In 1919, a group of Oak Park women decided to open the Economy Shop to raise funds for five local charitable organizations. Today the Economy Shop is a unique and indelible part of the community and continues to be an important resource for local charities.
OPRF Museum and the Economy Shop will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Economy Shop with a new exhibit "Donations Through the Decades, Shopping Through the Century," and a special opening reception on Saturday, March 2 from 3 to 5 p.m., including a fashion show. Volunteers will model some of the amazing fashions that have been recently donated to the Economy Shop.
The show is a preview of a special exhibit spotlighting the Economy Shop’s history that will run through May 2019 at OPRF Museum.
