ReStore Moves West

Habitat's fundraising resale store gets bigger and brighter.

by Anita LeBlanc

From the February, 2019 issue

Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley's new ReStore is just short jaunt from its old one on Aprill Dr. But while the old one was dark and cramped, the new 14,000-square-foot space next to Menard's is sunny and spacious. It opened on January 3--"the same day we received our final permit," laughs manager Kyle Thornhill.

Like the old store, the new one sells donated and new home- and construction-related bargains to raise money for affordable housing. Thornhill says that of the eighteen houses Habitat built and rehabbed last year, four were funded by ReStore profits.

One of the perks of the new location is a paved parking lot. Two docks-one for donation drop-offs and a second for purchase pickups--make unloading and loading easier.

Thornhill says furniture is ReStore's "bread and butter" and adds "We're always looking for lots of volunteers."

Habitat for Humanity Huron Valley ReStore, 6241 Jackson Rd., 276-0599. Tues.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. (donations accepted until 5:30). Closed Sun. & Mon. annarborrestore.org     (end of article)
