This place is awesome! You can get enough clothing to start a descent wardrope. All items are catorgorized by size and color. My first time there I had a good time sorting thru things and finding my size without any hassle from staff. In fact I went there looking for a dress for my daughter's graduation and a lady was very helpful. She went out of her way. Thank You Cornerstone Freestore!
This is a wonderful gathering of women here is Chicago.
