A retail landmark in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood is closing its doors after 93 years.

It's the end of an era for Children's Memorial Hospital's resale shop on North Lincoln Avenue.

The White Elephant will close August 31.

The store donated all of its proceeds to the hospital.

Store officials say they cannot afford to operate in its Lincoln Park neighborhood.
