Maywood videographer Mike Dawson recently created this neat promotional video about ReUse Depot, one of the largest reusable building material retailers in the Chicago metro area. The massive retailer is located at 50 W. Madison in Maywood — next door to Village Hall.
The store occupies the former site of the old Maywood Armory, where the 33rd Infantry Division of the Illinois National Guard was once based. After America entered WWII, the 33rd infantry division would be merged into Company “B” of the 192nd Tank Batallion, which would go on to face the infamous Bataan Death March.
Since moving into the village more than two years ago, ReUse has quickly become a staple institution, hosting renowned artists and a prominent local garden on its premises.
The roughly 13-minute video, which you can view above, is a nice synopsis of the retailer’s mission (and just how fortunate Maywood is to have landed the business). VFP
