BELLWOOD | Thrift store chain Savers shut down more than a third of its Chicago-area stores this spring.

Savers stores in Downers Grove, Arlington Heights, Franklin Park and Glenview closed April 17, Savers spokeswoman Sara Gaugl said.  The company also is closing a warehouse facility in Bellwood.  The Bellwood warehouse employees 23 workers who will be affected by the shutdown, Gaugl said.  .

The closures this spring, in Chicago and other markets, hit about 4 percent of Savers’ nearly 330 stores, Gaugl said.  Saver’s attributes the closing to mounting market pressures.

Savers, a for-profit company, buys donated goods from local nonprofits, and either sells or recycles the goods, according to the company.
