This is possibly the cleanest, best organized and most complete children's resale shop in the Chicago metropolitan area. The owner, Debbie, has been in business since 1984. From the beginning she has maintained a fabulous pricing structure to the advantage of her many customers who are also very savvy shoppers. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of her business and is more that willing to share that knowledge. She is helpful from start to finish and will even refer shoppers to other reputable resale shops in the area. Customers all return knowing that they will not leave empty handed. Lastly and perhaps most important, because Debbie has such impeccable manners virtually everyone has a pleasant and memorable shopping experience.
The Store has lots of different styles of clothing. First of all I���d like to mention that their prices are very low. Instead of going to some other stores to buy only 1 sweater at$30.00 I can go to Discovery and get 2 or even 3 for the same price. The quality depends on the merchandise but most likely you get what you paid for. For me, this is the best way to fill out my closet with new ���stuff��� every week. And this is great especially for school girls, who want to ���update��� their closets with another nice shirt. The only minus and inconvenience I found is that they do not have fitting rooms.
I really make a point to come up to the Clark Street location of Akira even though I know they don't have as large of a selection as the other stores. I do this because the staff is amazing! They remember me, they know what size I am and they make it a point to show me what's come in and what is new in the store. I love the store and the staff is really amazing. The more friendly and open you are the more they will dress you up and find clothes (even from the back) that will suit your needs and body type.
