The Encore Shop is located in the Hershman Building, 1301 Copperfield Ave., Joliet — on the former Silver Cross Hospital campus. The newly expanded store is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of the month from at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Donations can be dropped off at the new Encore Shop in Joliet or in the collection bin outside Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox.

For more than 50 years the Encore Shop has been operated by a volunteer group of women called the Silver Cross Advisory Board. In the past 11 years, the Advisory Board has donated more than $935,000 to Silver Cross for the purchase of a variety of medical equipment. The group recently completed a $75,000 pledge to purchase the water feature in the Dralle Serenity Garden outside the new Silver Cross Hospital at I-355 and Route 6 in New Lenox.
