ReStore FAQs

A Habitat ReStore is a retail home improvement store that accepts donations of new and gently used items from individuals and businesses in the community, and sells those items to the public at a reduced cost, usually 50-75 percent off the original retail value. Proceeds go toward building Habitat homes within each Habitat affiliate community.

Besides management, the store is staffed by Habitat for Humanity volunteers.

The ReStore is open to the public and is intended for anyone and everyone in search of great deals.

We accept donations via our donation center at the ReStore and ask that if you are able to bring the item(s) to our site that you consider that option first. Donation drop-offs can be made 30 mins after opening up until 30 mins before closing Wednesday through Saturday.

Although we do not deliver, we will hold purchased items for up to two additional business days from time of purchase with no charge. This allows customers time to make other arrangements to pick up purchased items. The store can refer you to several businesses in the area who can help you with transporting your merchandise.

Outside of the convenience of our free pick-up service, items donated to the ReStore are tax deductible. You’re also helping to keep reusable items out of landfills.
