Shopping and Donating at Our Stores Safely

Updated on August 6, 2021

Your safety and the safety of our staff and volunteers are first and foremost. We've created new protocols and rules in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that you should know before visiting. 


Masks are required indoors.

Stay home when sick. We are excited for you to be back shopping with us, but please wait until you are healthy. No one may visit any Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity location who has had a fever (100.4F or greater) within the last 14 days. This includes people who have
symptoms personally, or within their household.

Only touch the merchandise when it is necessary. This is a tough one because many people shop by feel, however we really want to keep items safe for everyone. We ask that you keep couch testing to a minimum and not loiter on the furniture.

Staff will be sanitizing shopping carts and baskets on a regular basis as well as wiping down our registers for a safe shopping experience. We have installed sneeze guards between our cashiers and shoppers. We are also requesting that you do not unload your cart unless necessary when checking out.


When dropping off donations we are following a no contact policy for the foreseeable future. Our staff is small, and we can only help ONE donor at a time safely in the drop off donation lane.

When you make a drop off donation, please wait in your vehicle until it is your turn to donate. When it is your turn, allow us access to your donation and then return to your vehicle. We will unload the donations that we are able to accept and provide you with a donation receipt if you choose to accept one.

We may not be able to accept every item you would like to donate. Please check out our donation guidelines prior to donating with us.

Donations are tax deductible. Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore will provide a donation receipt so you can use it as a tax deduction. Another perk for donating to ReStore! (MN Certificate of Exempt Status Number: ES 30657, Federal Tax ID: 363363171).

Please stay in your car. We will unload your donation. We can help one donor at a time in the donation lane.
