|Welcome to the ReStore!|
The ReStore North location is a medium-sized warehouse. I expected to find a lot of furniture, but it couches, tables, and chairs actually took up very little of the floor space. Instead there were pallets and shelves full of tile, carpet, hinges, and screws. There was also an area for light fixtures, sinks, and kitchen cabinets.
|Look at all of that flooring!|
My neighbour found carpet and underlay for less than half the price of new materials(likely a donation from a building site, where the end of roll wasn't usable). I eyed kitchen cabinets that I later learned may have been part of their Kitchen Salvage Program, which enables residents to donate their whole kitchens before renovations.
|Need new baseboards or wainscoting? I found plenty!|
All proceeds from ReStore fund Habitat for Humanity's administration costs. This means that every dollar donated directly to Habitat for Humanity goes directly to building homes and serving families.
