For a lot of us, there's never been a better time to tackle that big project or just spruce up some things around the house. At ReStore, you're likely to find whatever you need, from appliances to paint to power tools to gardening equipment – the list goes on and on – and you can rest easy knowing your purchase is helping create and preserve affordable homeownership within the Twin Cities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way you shop, but ReStore is still very much open for business, selling new and gently used items, materials, and just about anything to improve your home. And with homeowners finding the time to donate more, our inventory is awash with great new finds!
Watch the video below or read on for a quick overview of how to shop at ReStore during COVID-19.
How to Shop at ReStore During COVID-19
Update: Masks are required for those unvaccinated and are encouraged, but optional, for those fully vaccinated.
We've instituted a few new rules to keep everyone safe while browsing the aisles. Here are a few pointers to find the best deals while ensuring your safety and that of others in the store:
Check store hours. Both ReStore locations are open Tuesday to Friday. Stop by well before closing to make the most of your trip! For current hours or changes in hours, visit our location page here.
Stay home if you don't feel well. We know it hurts to pass up a great deal, but your health is worth it. (And so is ours!)
Wear a mask. Masks are required for those unvaccinated and are encouraged, but optional, for those fully vaccinated.
Stay six feet away from your fellow shoppers whenever possible. Be conscientious of other folks in the store – both shoppers and staff. Avoid lingering in the middle of an aisle and avoid touching items when browsing unless you absolutely need to.
Be ready to load your purchase into your car. Normally, we're happy to get your items in your car, but we've paused this service for your safety and ours.
Thank you to all ReStore shoppers and donors for your patience! We'll only get through the pandemic together, so we appreciate your help keeping ReStore a safe place to find great deals.
