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!
The ReStoration Corner
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!
Saturday, September 15
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
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.
The ReStore team is excited to announce that our next big sale is taking place on Saturday, April 21! During this Earth Day Sale (OK, it's actually a pre-Earth Day sale), shoppers can save 30% OFF everything at our Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity Restore home improvement outlet locations.
Considering tile flooring for your next home improvement project? It's durable and water-resistant, so it's well-suited to high-traffic areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, foyers, and laundry rooms. It's simple to care for, too.
Though, there is more to tile flooring than meets the eye. Before you go on a shopping spree, you may want to take a few minutes to learn about the differences among tile flooring. At the very least, this will help you “speak the same language” as the people at the store. And at best, you'll be able to make the best choice for you, your home, and your budget!
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.
If you're an avid DIYer, home improvement pro, or just called upon to perform home repairs on a regular basis, you know there are a number of stores in the metro area clamoring for your business. So why should you choose to shop at ReStore home improvement outlets? Good question.
