We need your help filling the new space

We need your help filling the new space

Regular ReStore shoppers may have already noticed, but our New Brighton location is expanding. ReStore sales have grown month over month which is one reason why our home improvement outlet needs to grow. This expansion has created an anticipated challenge, and we need your help. We need donations to help fill the new space!

Donations are the lifeblood of ReStore. For over 10 years in the Twin Cities area, homeowners and businesses donate furniture, tools, and other home improvement items. ReStore then sells those items to the public and the proceeds support affordable homeownership through Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity's work. It's really a remarkable solution to many problems for residents and businesses. Physical Items no longer needed unlock potential for someone else within our community. And an added bonus, tons of material aren't thrown away into landfills.

When the expansion project is completed later this spring, the New Brighton ReStore will be 50% larger and have way more parking spaces. But to get the new space ready for customers, we need more stuff for the sales floor. Here's what you can do today to help:

Donate items after a remodel

  • Appliances under 10 years old
