The name "GreenSky" is inspired by the founder of the church where the owners,
Nadeen Kieren and Thom Greene were married in 1994.
In the 1860’s a man named Peter Greensky founded the small the Objibway Indian church in Charlevoix, Michigan.
GreenSky (the store), was established in 2006, to add
to the retail mix of Andersonville's
commercial area, as well as adding a charming, artsy touch to this
once bland & shuttered building. GreenSky is the first business in Andersonville to earn Green America
approval and also the first to earn the highest
sustainability rating from Eco-Andersonville. Specializing in
recycled, reclaimed, Fair Trade, & socially conscious products; each
item on GreenSky's shelves has a story & does something good.
This colorful shop run by Shopkeeper, Nadeen Kieren, elected
to close March 2017, after 11 years, due to a multitude of reasons.
The parent company, GreenSky Company Ltd.
restored the building in 2005, winning a Good Neighbor Award from
the Chicago Board of Realtors and a Chicagoland Painted Ladies Award
for the colorful Victorian color scheme. GreenSky Company has also
restored 2 additional 3-flats in the area and each is an award
winner in its own right.
Nadeen & Thom pride themselves on the local focus of
their work. They live, work, & play locally…
