Help ReStore Give to the Max!

Posted by Becky Engen on Nov 1, 2018 12:00:00 PM

If you're new to Minnesota, or are just starting to dip your toes into the charitable giving world, you may not be familiar with Give to the Max. Just as other organizations celebrate "Giving Tuesday" on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Minnesota has quickly adopted "Give to the Max Day", a day of giving to support local nonprofits and schools. What used to be one day of giving (with the option to schedule your gift prior to the actual Give to the Max day) has turned into two full weeks of giving!

Back-to-School Savings

Posted by Becky Engen on Aug 8, 2018 12:24:59 PM

It's hard to believe, but back-to-school season is upon us, and it will be just a few short weeks until school is officially in session. With that in mind, we're offering some great deals over the next few weeks at our Twin Cities Habitat ReStore outlets, to help ease the painful price tags that can come when this season hits.

If you, or someone you know is headed (back) to college, and needs to furnish a dorm room or apartment, you need to check out our New Brighton and Minneapolis store locations to shop our new and gently-used inventory.  Items arrive and are placed on the sales floor daily, and our donation trucks have been busy these last few weeks!

Our stores are constantly receiving tables, chairs, couches, dressers, and more. You can check out our Facebook page to see some samples of our inventory, but hurry in if you see something you like—it's bound to sell quickly!

And even though our prices are already way below retail, we thought we'd make the deals even sweeter for our Hot Deals subscribers and VIPs by offering special savings on furniture just before school starts.
