Home improvement never felt so good! Buying low cost home improvement materials saves you money, keeps usable items from the local landfill and all profits benefit Habitat for Humanity's affordable housing solutions.
The Fox Cities Habitat ReStore is a retail outlet with a great mission. People and businesses donate new and good quality used home improvement materials, they’re sold to the public at great discount with donated materials and a strong volunteer workforce, the Habitat ReStore generates profits which go directly to the Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity to provide access to affordable housing solutions in the Fox Cities Area for families in need.
The first Habitat ReStore location (ReStore East) opened in the Fall of 2005, and the second location (ReStore West) opened in early 2018. Since 2005, the Appleton Habitat ReStore has provided the area with a great resource for remodeling, construction, and home improvement materials at unbeatable prices.
Since opening, the Habitat ReStore has been able to divert millions of pounds of potential waste from local landfills and is a valuable resource to the community by providing an environmentally friendly disposal option for excess building materials.
Donations range from good quality furniture that a family no longer needs, to building materials from local contractors, to brand new products that are donated from building supply manufactures and retailers.
Because the majority of what we dell is donated, we are able to keep our prices very affordable. Products sold at the ReStore can be marked down as much as 70% of their retail value which makes the Habitat ReStore a great place to shop!
Nearly all of the work that is done at the Habitat ReStore is completed by our dedicated volunteer base. We have plenty of opportunities to help out at the Habitat ReStore, and can find something for everyone to do!
