Maydel headquarters is located in Chicago’s beautiful Ravenswood neighborhood at 1746 W Wilson Avenue, conveniently near Metra, the Brown Line, and several bus lines. There is also ample parking for bicycles and cars.
Maydel has a small, permanent ramp from the sidewalk to the doorway. All visitors must ring/knock to be let in. The entrance is ADA-compliant at 33.5 inches wide and all shopping areas are wheelchair accessible.
We have a light rolling cart or lap trays to hold items while you’re shopping and a height-adjustable work table for classes and events.
We’re very sorry, but our restroom is not currently wheelchair accessible. We’re working on fixing things and finding alternatives, but renovations are expensive and it might take us a little while to save the funds needed.
