What is the ReStore?

The Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a home improvement outlet store. We are open to the public, and sales generated from the stores support the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate: building affordable homes alongside families in need. Our inventory includes donated appliances, cabinets, furniture, windows, doors, plumbing fixtures, lighting, tools, and much more! It’s the perfect place for bargain seekers and DIYers to shop and find great deals for everything from small projects to large home remodeling updates.

Donations from local contractors, retailers, metro area businesses, and people like you ensure that our inventory changes daily!

If you haven’t visited us lately, please stop by and check out some of the improvements we’ve made to the store. Outside, we’ve replaced the roof and updated the exterior with some new signage and lights. Inside we’ve upgraded the lights to LEDs and added security cameras. There is certainly more to do, but we are excited about these improvements. Next on our list are remodeled bathrooms, a new checkout counter, and a new parking lot.

Would you like to help us do more? We need your support to address the parking lot, bathrooms, and check-out desk. Be a part of it by adopting a pothole today!

ReStore is also a green alternative to disposing of used home improvement materials. On average, ReStore keeps over one million pounds of usable materials out of local landfills and into home building, remodeling, and creative arts projects per year.

The ReStore is a robust community of customers, donors, and volunteers. It is a cycle of giving that helps our community thrive. Keep the cycle going, donate, shop, and volunteer at Habitat ReStore.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

Call or email our Restore manager for a consultation to see if our Habitat ReStore Deconstruction Program is suitable for your needs. Photos of the building materials you wish to have removed is appreciated.

Does the deconstruction service cost me anything?

No, our removal services are free. We ask that you allow us to take what we find salvageable and all other items that we deem unsaleable will be left for you to dispose of.

*Free will donations are accepted and appreciated. A donation will help us cover the costs of our truck, fuel, and staffing and will help us put more money into helping build affordable housing in our community. 

What do you deconstruct?

Our Habitat ReStore Deconstruction Program has been involved in many full house scrapes associated with property buyouts due to flood zones. We also do full kitchen removals and smaller projects approved on a case-by-case basis.
