I just visited a place in Pekin called the Hope Chest. It is on the order of a Goodwill or Salvation Army. It is a nonprofit organization. They have another store in Havannah. They would like to open a place in Kewanee. Curious what everyone thinks. I would like to add that they have an attitude that everything was donated to them so they do not sell it high priced at all. I was amazed. I found very nice clothes for less then a dollar a piece. There is everything from furniture to clothes to housewares. The special yesterday was everything you can fit in a bad for two dollars for the clothes; everything you can fit in a box for $5.00 for housewares and decorations and misc. I like shopping at Goodwill and Salvation Army, this is an awesome business.

That's would be a real good non profit for kewanee....... People'do notmrealize tho that the money taken in by the local goodwill doe not stay local as it is supposed to.The manager makes workers set higher prices as well, and is known for overcharging when she is on the register....As for the salvation army by rights anything purchased there is supposed to be based on what you want to donate for the item not set prices

Pekin is a larger city where people donate more items than around here. It does not matter if it is a great place to shop, put that business here and it will get donated items just like Goodwill, Salvation Army and Abilities Plus from local people and as you can see from those stores what is being donated. Granted Goodwill does have a semi that comes with items from other stores, but a lot comes in from local people. The Hope Chest is just going to be another place for locals to donate items and you will not see the same type of items as in Pekin.
