That's right. We said it. It's almost here!

We're in the swing of the holiday season and quickly approaching the New Year! As you plan out your shopping trips over the next few weeks, we wanted to make you aware of some special store hours that we will be observing.
As the holidays draw nearer, our team is excited to announce that both our New Brighton and Minneapolis stores will be designated Toys for Tots drop-off sites this season!
Happy Thanksgiving Week to you and your family! While you're preparing for your holiday festivities (and maybe creating that list of stores to visit during Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday), we wanted to take a minute to update you on our holiday store hours:
Starting Wednesday, November 21 through Monday, November 26 both our New Brighton and Minneapolis locations will be CLOSED to allow our staff time to spend the holidays with their families. We will reopen both stores at 10am on Tuesday, November 27.
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!
One of the most popular items sold at the Twin Cities Habitat ReStore are Adirondack chairs and toy boxes built through youth workshops. These chairs not only generate funding for our mission, but also provide a hands-on building opportunity for volunteers who are too young to help with construction on our Habitat homes.
Mark your calendars and get ready to celebrate 11 years of shopping and saving in the Twin Cities at the upcoming Habitat for Humanity ReStore Anniversary Sale event!

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.
In late April, our ReStore team partnered with staff members from our Homeownership department to help furnish a Habitat home. The home was then open for the public to visit April 28 and 29 as part of the Minneapolis St. Paul Home Tour.
