When you shop or donate at a ReStore, you are automatically supporting not only your local store, but also the Habitat mission worldwide. Additionally, ReStores are always looking for volunteers. Volunteers can range from cashiers and customer service to interior decorators and baristas.

If interested in volunteering at one of our ReStores, please email volunteer@hfhmv.org.

When a gently used building material or household product is donated to a Habitat ReStore and then sold at a discount to a community member that needs it, that item is recycled and kept out of the landfill.

Habitat ReStores help fund Habitat for Humanity’s mission to end substandard housing by building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. Profits from Habitat ReStores are put to use both in your local community and around the world.

Habitat ReStores tend to resemble a home improvement store — a very unique home improvement store.

At the majority of ReStores you’ll find items that fit into the following categories: building materials, appliances and furniture. The items you’ll find will range from brand new to gently used, and there will likely be a wide range of brands and styles.

Of course, that’s not all you’ll find.

Because the inventory of each ReStore depends on donations, you never know exactly what you’ll find. We recommend heading to your local Restore today to see what's in stock! (Of course, you may want to go back next week, too, to see what new items have arrived).

Habitat ReStores tend to accept household items or building materials, which can include a wide variety of products. ReStore donations come from all kinds of sources — from your neighbor after a finished home project to a large restaurant chain with old furniture after remodeling.

The items accepted at any given ReStore can vary for many reasons, including local requirements, store size and the amount of certain items the store already has in stock.
However, most stores are often on the lookout for the following specific items:

Household items

  • Furniture

  • Appliances

  • Lighting

Building materials

  • Doors and windows
  • Plumbing supplies
  • Hand and power tools
  • Flooring

This is not an exhaustive list, but it is a good start to let you know what kind of items ReStores accept if you are thinking about donating. If there is ever a question about what is accepted please call 330-755-2232 (Struthers) or 330-337-4808 (Salem).

Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers. The items sold are available to the public and similar to what you may see in other home good stores, such as a brand new box of tile you’ve been needing for your bathroom project or a vintage treasure you won’t find anywhere else. However, Habitat ReStores are more than just resell stores.

The purpose of Habitat ReStores is to contribute to the work of Habitat for Humanity. When you support your local ReStore by shopping, donating or volunteering, you are not only supporting your local community, you're also helping the mission to provide decent shelter to everyone around the world.
