Ribbon-cutting: February 24
The ReStore formerly situated at 390 Route 57 West in Washington, NJ in the Tractor Supply plaza has been moved. It is re-opening in a new location is just a few feet away at the site of the old ShopRite store. The ReStore is the Habitat retail outlet that sells furniture, décor, household goods, building supplies, rugs, appliances, etc. It uses the profits to fund new home construction.
The ReStore opened its doors as “The Store” in the spring of 2012 and had been located in the Tractor Supply plaza ever since. Occupying about half of the new building, the ReStore will have The Chapel at Warren Valley’s brand new worship center as its neighbor, Both organizations couldn’t be more pleased.
There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9AM on Saturday, February 24. It will be followed by refreshments, music, discounts and prizes to celebrate our new home.
Volunteers: Come celebrate the re-opening!
Without the support of dozens of dedicated volunteers, we would not have been able to move so seamlessly from the old ReStore to the new one. Volunteers have helped out with building renovations, stocking, moving, cleaning, refurbishing and numerous other retail activities.
Donors: Come celebrate!
The ReStore could not operate without the generous donations of gently used items by hundreds of individuals in the community. Donating to the ReStore is easy. It enables good quality items to be sold at a discount to higher commercial prices. If you’ve never donated to the ReStore, try it out. It’s better than trashing items that still have some use in them and it is tax deductible. For more information, click to our web pages here.
Shoppers: Come celebrate!
Most of all, the beauty of the ReStore is that the profits are used to build Habitat homes. Simple decent housing in the county can still cost over $100,000 to build with a partner family, and much of those funds are the result of ReStore sales. As a result of those funds, Habitat home prices are kept fairly low.
What can you find at the ReStore? First of all, furniture such as tables, chairs, dining sets, sofas, lamps, beds (not mattresses), bureaus, and desks. Also, household items such as plates, flatware, knickknacks, pictures, picture frames, linens, and kitchen items. Construction materials such as lighting, small lumber, block, doors, fasteners, insulation, sinks, and tools. All items are priced at a significant discount. There are also unique and unusual items that appear from time to time.
Everyone: Come celebrate!
