Planet Access Co. Store Remodel – Grand Reopening in Spring 2020
In 2020, Search is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its social enterprise, Planet Access Co. Store with a major revamp and re-launch of the store!
While renovations are underway, please join us for a pop-up store at 4757 North Lincoln Ave. starting February 7, 2020 to shop big warehouse sales and closeouts! Apparel, shoes, bags, holiday and home goods will be sold at 60%-80% off. The pop-up will be open from Monday-Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 10am-5pm. Stop by to get some great deals, and spread the word to family and friends!
Planet Access has been a Lincoln Square staple since opening in 2010.
Known as the retail store with a mission, the store has always offered premier brands that specialize in sustainable, socially responsible clothing, jewelry, and home decor. 100% of the proceeds from purchases at the store help over 500 people with disabilities served by Search to live more independent, purposeful and connected lives in their community.
Beginning February first, the store will temporarily close while it undergoes a complete makeover. Search and our partner at Toad&Co will be creating a brand-new shopping experience featuring Toad&Co’s complete collection, and many other sustainable and socially responsible brands.
The partnership between Toad&Co and Search spans more than two decades. In 1997, Search and Toad&Co co-founded Planet Access Company Warehouse. A third-party logistics provider, the warehouse generates earned income that helps to support Search’s important services for people with developmental disabilities. It also provides individuals in Search’s employment programs with opportunities to engage in paid-work and gain valuable work experiences.
In 2004, we collaborated again to launch Search for Adventure (SFA), a unique travel program that provides individuals with developmental disabilities first-time outdoor and vacation adventure experiences. SFA has taken more than 700 people on 104 trips that have included hiking the historic Appalachian Trail, experiencing the majesty of the Grand Canyon, and riding the range at the Powderhorn Dude Ranch in Colorado.
With the re-launch of Planet Access store, Search and Toad&Co will be taking their relationship to the next level. As Search’s president, John Lipscomb puts it: “This collaboration reflects a deepening of Toad&Co’s commitment to the social purpose and mission of Search – to empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve their full potential, accept a valued role in their community and lead rich, rewarding lives.”
