I love the D.I. I love how many people are able to find employment there--many from my ward have benefited from it. I'm grateful it is so close, and I often find treasures there. I've stopped buying clothes at full price, because everytime I walk in to the D.I. I find something "interesting" to wear. I like how charitable they are to the needy, and yet they are still required to maintain a level of profitability--such that they are not a drain upon church resources. It is a very good model for a charitable institution and a closer examination of the internal workings could benefit a lot of other well-meaning but much less organized charitable foundations in the world.

The DI on Highland Drive opened at that location 70 years ago?

Are you sure?
For one thing, that's not a 1930s style building.
For another, I distinctly remember it being a department store (JC Penney?)

I wish they were back here but they arent. I always loved going to DI when I lived out there. It was fun.
