About Us

The Secret Agent Supply Co. is the storefront of 826CHI, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students aged 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Learn more about 826CHI here!

Formerly known as The Boring Store, the Secret Agent Supply Co. is a part of the 826National network of stores and serves to introduce 826CHI's programs to the community, inspire creativity in our students, and raise funds for 826CHI's free programs. 

Store Hours
Our store hours are 11:30 AM - 5:30 PM Tuesday through Saturday

Our store is supported by volunteers, so these hours are subject to change as our staff and volunteer availability fluctuates. The absolute best way to make sure we are open when you arrive is to call ahead on the day you are planning to come by and we'll let you know our hours for the day!
