What are Habitat ReStores and how do they help my community?

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are home and building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used building materials. Shopping at a Habitat ReStore is a socially conscious decision, as funds generated are used to fund local Habitat for Humanity homebuilding projects. It’s also an environmentally conscious decision, as much of what is sold is product that is new, gently used or customer returns that would otherwise end up in a landfill.

Habitat ReStores help keep material out of the landfill by selling donated new and lightly used building products, household goods, outdoor furnishings and tools at significant savings. The proceeds from sales help provide long term sustainability and support for Habitat for Humanity.

Items for sale include lighting, flooring, furniture, small and large appliances, antiques, housewares, construction materials such as lumber, tile, paint and hardware and fixtures such as kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, toilets, shower stalls and bathtubs Our inventory is 100% donated by businesses and individuals and is sold at greatly reduced prices to help reduce building and renovation costs for our customers.
