A new store that describes its goods as fun, functional, inspirational and well-designed has opened in a vacant storefront in Andersonville and promises to offer a one-stop shopping for gifts, accessories, novelties, and toys.

The new Enjoy urban general store at 5307 N. Clark is the second location for the company who also owns an online business at UrbanGeneralStore.com. They will take over the prime retail storefront that was left vacant by Specialty Video after their departure from the neighborhood years ago.

The original Enjoy opened in 2005 at 4723 N. Lincoln and has become a mainstay for the Lincoln Square neighborhood. The Founder and Owner of Enjoy, Rebecca Woods, brings the same concept to Andersonville with a wide range of interesting and useful gifts from baby and children’s items to home and office goods. The store stocks all the 10,000+ family-focused items in an organized fashion on simple wood shelving and steel bins.

Woods comes from a family with a long history of running retail establishments. She worked in her grandmother’s jewelry store as a child and continued to learn the business after her parents opened their first store on Cape Cod 30 years ago.

Those years of running the day-to-day operations of retail gave here the expanded knowledge on how to be successful in the industry. She eventually brought her business expertise to Chicago and has thrived as a small, independent retailer for 15 years which is no easy feat in today’s economy.

Enjoy opened their doors on September 5. Hours are Monday through Friday 11 a.m. – 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
