About The Bazaar
The Bazaar is a family-run business that has been operating for over 60 years. Founded in 1960 by Norman Nardick, the Bazaar had humble beginnings in its first 1500 sq ft. Chicagoland warehouse and headquarters. As the business grew, it evolved to change with the times. From selling to flea markets and small retailers, the Bazaar grew its relationships, partnering with household names. 

That 1500 sq ft warehouse has since evolved into a 400,000 sq ft. warehouse and office in River Grove, Illinois. The Bazaar has stayed with the Nardick family, now operated by Brad Nardick, grandson of founder Norman. In addition to the Nardick family, the Bazaar now has a family of its own, consisting of employees, customers and community members. Though the Bazaar has changed over time, the commitment to customers and community has always remained paramount.
