As you are pulling walls down, please call The ReStore! As you’re remodeling, don’t let the items you no longer need end up in the landfill – donate used building materials to The Restore.
Why ReStore? Because your building’s rehabilitation, in Scott’s Addition, can do good…again! Everything that is donated to Habitat ReStore is put on a sales floor, much like a thrift store. This thrift store sells a wide variety of building materials and is open to the general public. The retail outlet, located at 190 Roane Street, in Richmond, offers building and home improvement supplies for sale to the general public – and those salvaged supplies are donated by … YOU. And the profits are used to rebuild and rehabilitate new Habitat for Humanity homes, for hardworking, local families.
Are you a treasure hunter? Or do you get a kick out of searching for the perfect piece of furniture? Check out ReStore, for yourself! The prices are well below retail and specific pricing depends on age, condition, quality, and quantity of the item. If you have a project in mind (or are looking for a project), shop often and bring your measurements. Last year alone, ReStores diverted thousands of tons of usable building supplies from landfills.
