I Sachs Sons Inc. - Hidden Gem on Roosevelt Road

I Sachs Sons, Inc. 637 West Roosevelt Road, Chicago, IL 60607 (312)666-0091

I was looking for a black coat zipper with silver teeth to replace the zipper in my sisters coat. Several weeks ago I purchased a zipper online, but it was too long. Well I searched high and low for the right length with no luck. One day while shopping in Vogue Fabrics, I asked one of the sales clerks if she knew where I could buy a heavy coat zipper. She replied, "Next store. They have all sorts of zippers, notions, and leather goods." Off to I Sachs I went. Hmm.., They close early, 3:00pm to be exact.

So last week I finally returned to I Sachs before closing time. And it was more than I hoped for.

Have you bought anything from this store? If yes were the prices competitive? My first visit, I didn't buy a thing; but quickly made a mental note of all the wonderful goods I could purchase there. The owner was kind enough to give me four zipper stops and he explain how I could shorten the zipper I already had.

Were the sales people polite and friendly? Extremely.

How would you rate the quality of the item this store sells? Excellent. There were tons of eyelets, zippers, shoe making materials, you name it.

How was your shopping experience. Is there anything you did not like about this store? I walk around the store thinking, " ooh, I'll be back; That's a nice piece of leather; tacks for jeans; Wow!"

Would you shop here again? Yes. And soon.

Would you recommend this store to others? If you are in the Chicagoland area, check them out. Great supplies and notions.

Any other comments you would like to add? I've been shopping at Vogue's and Fishman's for as long as I've worked at the University and never noticed this great little warehouse. It's a gem.


  1. I've seen this store, but like you never gone inside. Next time I'll have to check it out.

  2. I really miss all the great stores in Chicago. I was a regular at Vogue in Evanston.......we have nothing here, makes me miss home!
