When you walk into Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s new ReStore in South Minneapolis, you’ll immediately see a great selection of furniture, lighting, paint, building materials, flooring and more. You’ll also see low prices on everything you need for your new home fix-up or repair projects. You’ll even see smiling faces of ReStore staff and volunteers eager to help you find exactly what you need. What’s not so easily noticed is what makes the new ReStore a great green partner to the community.

It might seem a long way from a career in the headquarters of a Fortune 500 retailer to working in a Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore. For Robin, it just seemed like a natural path. Robin had spent most of her career in retail merchandising and project management for Target Corporation. After leaving the company, a former co-worker told her ReStore was planning on opening a second store and suggested she check them out. Robin did, and it changed everything for her.
