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.

After opening its doors in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis in September 2016, the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore home improvement outlet has become a staple of the neighborhood. Now, a year and a half later, it has hit a huge milestone: one million dollars in sales. And all that goes right back to making Habitat homes affordable for homebuyers across the Twin Cities.

Prepare Yourself: Tips for the Annual 50% Sale

Posted by Jared Laabs on Jan 13, 2018 7:33:00 AM

The ReStore offers a variety of sales throughout the year, but by far the biggest sale would be the Annual 50% Off Everything Sale. Everything in the store is half off the sticker price! This ONE DAY sale is January 27, 2018 (9 a.m. - 4 p.m.) at either one of our ReStore outlet locations (New Brighton or Minneapolis).

Here are some tips to help you tackle the sale:

1.) Be an Early Bird

Each ReStore will open one hour early on January 27. The doors open at 9am. If you're one of the first people to arrive, you'll be first to catch the deals. Make a list of things you may need for a current project or something you want to tackle in the future. If you can grab things now for a project down the road, that extra 50% off will stretch your renovation budget.

A Tale of Two ReStores

Posted by Blake MacKenzie on Jan 11, 2018 3:47:32 PM

As you might imagine, there are many similarities between the two Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStores (one located in New Brighton, the other in Minneapolis). They’re both near busy highways, making them accessible for shoppers and donors. They both feature a vibrant and ever-changing assortment of gently-used (or new) items for sale that help fuel Habitat’s mission. And, with a combined total of over 4,000 volunteers, 14,000 donations, and 48,000 shoppers in the last year—both stores are doing quite well.
