Our dearest geeks,

For the past 17 years FreeGeek Chicago has been serving the Chicago area offering training, affordable computers systems, e-waste recycling and a safe place for all technology and non-technology enthusiast to meet. For this reason, It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the permanent closing of FreeGeek Chicago’s operations effective June 30th, 2022.

This decision has not been taken lightly and there are many contributing factors which have influenced our staff, managers and board to come to this conclusion. However, declining sales and the COVID-19 pandemic have been the main reasons for this closure.

We want to thank all our friends and volunteers for always supporting us not only at this difficult time but every single time. When we have asked for your help we have always felt your presence and your support. For this, we thank you.

We will be announcing a series of sales and heavy discounts in all our stock over the upcoming days.

Please feel to reach out to us if you have any questions, concerns or wish to purchase in bulk.

Thank you today, tomorrow and forever.

Your friends @ FreeGeek Chicago

City of Chicago's COVID-19

Risk is at: HIGH


Please be advised that, following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and based on Chicago’s current local COVID-19 data, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) now recommends that everyone over the age of 2, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in public indoor settings. Masking remains optional in outdoor settings, where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower, though masks are recommended for unvaccinated individuals in crowded outdoor settings.

COVID-19 Community Levels have been developed by the CDC to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest local COVID-19 data. Levels are determined each week for each county in the U.S. A county’s risk level can be low, medium, or high based on a combination of three metrics: the number of new local COVID-19 cases; the number of new local COVID-19 hospital admissions; and the proportion of local hospital beds occupied by patients with COVID. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area.

To our volunteers,
