Habitat ReStores are retail outlets where quality used and surplus building materials are sold at a fraction of normal prices. Proceeds from ReStores help local affiliates fund the construction of Habitat houses within the community. Many affiliates across the United States and Canada operate successful ReStores—some of which raise enough funds to build an additional 10 or more houses per year.
Materials sold by Habitat ReStores are usually donated from building supply stores, contractors, demolition crews or from individuals who wish to show their support for Habitat. In addition to raising funds, ReStores help the environment by rechanneling good, usable materials into use.
Habitat ReStore Mission
• Habitat ReStore is a program of the affiliate and their primary mission is to provide additional funding to support the affililates house building goals
• Expand opportunities to serve a broader base of the low income community by providing low cost materials
• Provide good stewardship of sustainable resources in the community
ReStore History: In September 1992, the first Habitat for Humanity ReStore in the U.S. opened it's doors in Austin, Texas. At that time, the Habitat ReStores were known to sell building materials only. Today, with approximately 500 stores strong in 3 countries and growing, the Habitat ReStores sell everything from household items to furniture to building materials.
