YES! Anyone and everyone can donate, shop and volunteer at the ReStore!  

No, but we use a systematic mark down program that discounts most items 15% or more each month. Please note that not all items are part of the monthly “mark down.”

Brand new items are priced 50% OFF of retail value, other items, depending on condition, are priced between 50% – 90% off retail value.

We receive donations and update our inventory daily. Prior to putting items out on the sales floor our staff and volunteers clean, check for usability and sometimes refinish pieces. Be sure to stop in often at the ReStore – you never know what you will find! Or follow us on Facebook to see what’s new.

No. Proceeds from materials sold in the ReStore support our housing programs – affordable new construction, home repairs and ramps.

Yes!  Our ReStore is part of Habitat for Humanity and a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization. All donations can receive a potential tax deduction.

All sales at the ReStore are final.  The only exception is with appliances. Appliances have a 7 day return policy. Beyond that, we do not accept returns.

No. We cannot place a value on any donations for tax purposes. This is the responsibility of the donor.

Volunteers play a vital role in donation intake, donation pick-ups, stocking shelves, pricing items, assisting customers, cleaning and so much more!  We simply could not survive without the dedication and commitment of our volunteers. We also have several wonderful full-time and part-time employees at the ReStore. 

No. Each ReStore is individually operated by the Habitat for Humanity affiliate office in that area. This means they do not all carry the same items, prices, policies, hours, etc.

It’s easy!  Simply fill out our Volunteer Application & Waiver form and return it to our Volunteer Coordinator. A ReStore volunteer’s primary responsibility is greeting customers that visit or call, answering questions and providing information about the ReStore and our Habitat affiliate. Volunteers can also sort, clean and repair donated items as well as schedule donor pick ups.
