What is the ReStore?
Habitat for Humanity Regina owns and operates the ReStore in Regina. The ReStore is a retail store that accepts donations of new and used items. Building materials and supplies are donated by manufacturers, stores, and individuals. Items include new and gently used building materials, appliances, cabinetry, sinks, countertops, household and décor items. The ReStore then sells these items to the public at a fraction of the retail cost, typically 50-80% percent less that original cost.
We are constantly receiving new inventory so very trip to the Habitat for Humanity Regina ReStore will be a new experience. Come by often to find a fantastic deal or a one-of-a-kind item.
ReStores across Canada have diverted approximately 113,000 tonnes of waste from landfills since 1998
Who Benefits from the ReStore?
The proceeds from the ReStore cover Habitat for Humanity Regina's administrative costs. That means every dollar raised goes directly into building homes.
Whether you buy or donate materials, you are helping to reduce the amount of usable building materials being deposited into a landfill.
Purchase new and gently used items at 50%-80% off original prices.
Donating new or gently used items keeps them out of landfills to be discovered and used by someone new. Upon request, you can receive a tax receipt for the value of items donated.
Regina ReStore profits pay for 100% of the administrative costs of Habitat for Humanity Regina. By covering these costs, Habitat for Humanity Regina is able to direct every dollar donated to the organization toward building homes.
Our Goals for 2014:
- Generate cash flow to support Habitat's home building program
- Provide an opportunity for prospective homeowners and others to volunteer
- Provide Regina with a source of low-cost building materials
- Keep useable and valuable materials out of the landfill
