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.

What to Look for When Shopping for Tile Flooring

Posted by ReStore Staff on Feb 24, 2018 8:30:00 AM

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!

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.

The making of our ReStore PSA

Posted by Becky Engen on Dec 22, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Just last month, our store team wandered into new territory, as we created our first-ever Public Service Advertisement (PSA) for our local Twin Cities ReStore locations. PSAs are generally created for charities, messages about health or safety, or topics concerning the general public. These short videos are then distributed to local TV stations to run when they do not have other programming or advertising scheduled.
