MT ZION, Ill. (WAND) – For two decades, the “Mother to Mother” retail store has made shopping easier for families in central Illinois. Shanda Pilger has owned the Mount Sion store for six years.
“I was a co-signer and customer before I bought it and I know it can be helpful in raising kids so I thought it was a great idea so I took it over,” Pilger said.
The best part? You can everything in the store for a reduced price.
“People want a good deal and they find it at 69 cents, you can’t really beat it,” Pilger said. “So a 69 cent outfit for their kid and school is coming and I know it can be very expensive for clothes, shoes and learning materials, so we can offer all of those things.”
You can find just about anything – from maternity clothes for mom – to clothes and backpacks for kids and even toys for the little ones.
“We here stories all the time about how people are in need – so we help a lot of people. We also donate to a foster home,” Pilger said.
The retail store has several great deals throughout each month – just in time for back-to-school shopping.
“We can help others and that’s our main goal – if there’s anything we can do to help people, that’s what we want to do,” Pilger said. “We always have a half sale and a dollar sale going all the time, and then we also have a dollar sale where three of the labels will be a dollar.”
The store’s opening hours are Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. store also has a location in Mattoon.
