What is A ReStore?
A ReStore is a retail home improvement center that sells quality new (surplus) and used
donated building materials. ReStore merchandise is donated and sales revenue supports the
mission of Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity. The ReStore relies on volunteers and
donations to be successful.
Who donates to the ReStore?
Anyone can donate. Often donors are contractors, home builders, lumber yards,
remodelers, hardware stores, and other local companies and individuals.
Why would I donate to the ReStore?
Donating to the ReStore is an alternative and cost effective way to dispose of
materials that would otherwise be taken to the landfill. In Minnesota alone, over 6
million tons of useable building materials have been kept out of landfills. Beyond
these economic and environmental benefits, donating to the ReStore can have tax
advantages, eliminate the cost of storing or restocking excess merchandise, and all
proceeds support the mission of Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity.
How can I donate?
Donations are now accepted Thursdays 3 PM– 6 PM, Fridays 9 AM– Noon, Saturdays
9 AM– Noon. Bring donations to 2801 West Saint Germain Street, St. Cloud. Please
reference the other side of this flyer for a complete list of accepted materials.
Where is the ReStore and why have I never heard about it before?
Although there are over 700 independent ReStores around the country, it is new to
the Central Minnesota area. The future ReStore will be located at 2801 West Saint
Germain Street, St. Cloud. The ReStore has begun accepting donations and will open
to customers in early summer.
What is Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity (CMHFH)?
