Habitat ReStore is a local home improvement center that sells home improvement merchandise to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Habitat ReStore sells a variety of items such as new or gently-used furniture, appliances, housewares and building materials. The profits from the Habitat ReStore funds the Habitat for Humanity homebuyer program that builds and renovates homes for sale to local families with low and moderate incomes. Habitat ReStore is 40,616 square feet and opened in 2012. At this time, donations to Habitat ReStore are not being accepted.
“As the most successful ReStore in Virginia, we are excited to expand our offerings with a new online store, so that we can continue to raise funds for the mission of Habitat for Humanity,” said Jonathan Martinez, the Williamsburg Habitat ReStore manager.
The Williamsburg Habitat ReStore has seen incredible growth over the past eight years and with the Newport News location (371 Chatham Drive), the pair of Habitat ReStores have net enough funds to build over 75 affordable homes locally. Both locations are part of the Habitat for Humanity Peninsula & Greater Williamsburg (Habitat PGW), which serves Virginia families with low and moderate incomes in the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and Williamsburg, plus the counties of Charles City, James City, New Kent and York. Habitat PGW was founded in 1985.
