Military Surplus

Does anyone know of a good military surplus store close to Naperville/Plainfield? I can't seem to find anything online about local stores.

Thanks in advance.

I believe there's one on Ogden... somewhere between Naperville and Villa Park on the north side. Sorry I can't be more detailed... I just used to see it between Guitar Center and home.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

No more Army Surplus in Joiet. There was one on Broadway forever that was great. It closed like ten years ago.

The one on Jefferson was ok, but it closed 5 years ago.

I've been to the ogden ave one before, and they didn't have too much stuff. I believe the one in forest park, was the one I use to go to. They have a lot of stuff. If that place is still around.

The one on Ogden in Downers is on the right if you're heading east, if you hit Fairview.... you went too far. They had alot when I was there but then again, it depends on what you're looking for.

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character

There is a military surplus store on the north side of Roosevelt Rd in Lombard, just east of Finley Rd.

I used to keep getting that one (in Lombard) confused with the gyros stand down the block. I think it's moved since then but it's been a while since I noticed it.

Trader John's up in South Elgin used to be pretty good when I lived over by there. Haven't been there in a while but it's probably worth checking out.
