What is your business all about? What do you sell/do?
At ReUse Depot, we’re proud to be Chicagoland’s only complete reuse solution. Starting with our deconstruction services, we offer comprehensive salvage process that prepares your home for renovation or restoration while repurposing every usable element—from high-cost, high-investment pieces like light fixtures to kitchen appliances to the hardworking building blocks like nails and screws.
So what happens to the thousands of pounds of building materials we salvage from these teardowns? We sell them at our store at a fraction of the original cost.
Open 7 days a week, the Reuse Depot warehouse is a treasure chest for rehab addicts, construction pros, and weekend warriors alike, filled with the abundant spoils of our salvage business. You’ll find everything from decorative antique fixtures and quality, original hardwood flooring to complete kitchens—including appliances and countertops—and a wealth of repurposed materials for every DIY project you can imagine.
How long have you been in business?
We have been in business for about 4 years. The original store opened in Bellwood in 2012 and we moved to this location in 2014.
Why did you decide to open in Maywood?
We chose to move here mainly because of the property. We are located in the old national guard armory building and at around 44,000 square feet we have lots of room to grow.
What would locals be surprised to hear about you, your business or your inventory?
We are very community focused. We have a community garden on the west side of our property that is run by Proviso Partners for Health and Opportunity Knocks is putting in a garden on the east side of our property which they are going to use to grow cucumbers for their Knockout Pickles fundraiser. We also kick off Maywood Village Pride-Village Wide on our yard every year and work extensively with the Baton Day Organization. Another thing we are very excited about is that we are working on opening up an events space in what previously was the armory hall. It is a beautiful 8,000 square foot 3 story completely open space and we can’t wait to be able to share it with the community (hopefully) next year!
