- North Shore Exchange’s mission is to provide funding for organizations that provide human services and education to children and families through revenues generated through our two retail stores and online store. To date, we have given away $1 million dollars to charities serving Chicagoland children and families living at or below the poverty line.
North Shore Exchange‘s two retail stores — one in Glencoe and one on North Michigan Avenue in Chicago — and our online store resell luxury fashion and home items obtained from consigners and donors. Our success story is largely thanks to our dedicated and highly skilled, mostly volunteer work force. These volunteers enable us to take the maximum amount of profits we earn and give them back to the charities we support.
