Hadassah House, a high end resale shop with two Chicagoland locations, got its first nod from the Village Board of Trustees Monday to move its Highland Park location to Deerfield Park Plaza on Lake Cook Road.
The Board unanimously approved a recommendation from the Plan Commission to grant shopping center owner Sherwood Blitzstein a special use permit which will allow the organization to operate the store.
“This is a good use of the location and we’re happy to have you here,” Mayor Harriet Rosenthal said after the vote. The Village will now prepare an ordinance spelling out the details of the special use which should get a vote from the Board this year.
Currently generating $553,000 in revenue producing Illinois sales tax of $45,000, shopping center owner Sherwood Blitzstein expects the Deerfield location to outperform the existing business.
Blitztein also made it clear to the Deerfield Plan Commission, which gave its approval Oct. 24, all merchandise is brought to the store by donors eliminating the need for drop bins around the Village.
