Thrifty Buyers help Habitat for Humanity

The Longfellow neighborhood in SE area of Minneapolis is now home to the newest reusable home goods center called the ReStore.

Habitat for Humanity opened this second store as part of their non-profit home improvement outlet program, their original store is located in New Brighton, and both stores are filled with donated items allowing Habitat for Humanity recipients to benefit from the sale of new and used items donated to their stores.

Homeowners benefit as there are 23,000 square feet of options to view that could potentially keep the costs of remodeling down and help you buy options for pennies on the dollar of what new would cost.

Contributions come from individuals and corporations, including Valspar Paints, who also donated 1,800 gallons of paint for the opening of the new store.  The original store in New Brighton was so successful at providing funds for new construction in 2015 that 6 families were able to get new homes.

If you prefer to donate rather than make a purchase, the ReStore accepts donations of doors, light fixtures, appliances, furniture, hardware, tiles, tools, plumbing, flooring, cabinets and more.

They are open Tuesday through Friday 10AM – 6PM with donations accepted until 5PM.  They are open Saturday from 10AM – 4PM with donations accepted until 3PM, and, they are closed on Sunday.   All donations are tax deductible.
