Wiki

Habitat ReStores are retail outlets where 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 their communities. Many affiliates across the United States and Canada operate successful ReStores—some raise enough funds to build 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 house building.

Find a ReStore or Donate Building Supplies
If you want to shop for building materials, or if you or your company have materials to donate, please contact your local ReStore.
