The Habitat ReStore is always full of great, gently-used, donated items. We are open Tuesday-Friday 11am-5pm and Saturday 10am-4pm – and closed on Sundays and Mondays.
When shopping with us, you may find items that are too large to carry around with you. In that case, remove the price tag from the item you intend to buy, and take it to the cashier’s desk for a Sale Pending Tag. The cashier will fill out this one-hour hold tag to place on the item while you continue to shop.
When you’re ready to check-out, the cashier will ring up all of your items and/or large-item price tags. We’re happy to help you load your large items! Just ask for a Sold Tag at checkout, and attach it to any items you’d like help loading.
Then, drive around to the Donation Drive, and our team will be available to assist you with loading. You must have your receipt to pick up your item(s). Can’t take the item with you? We can hold purchases for one business day if you need to come back.
The Habitat ReStore accepts new, gently-used, and like-new donations of a wide variety of items. From furniture, lighting, house wares, and picture frames, to hardware, tools, lumber, and building materials, there are always an abundance of items to be found.

The Habitat ReStore is a fundraising and outreach program of the Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County organization. The donations we receive as tax-deductible, and the proceeds of our sales go directly toward supporting future Habitat homeowners in the pursuit of affordable homeownership.
We serve as an annual home sponsor by providing the funding needed to cover the construction materials and land costs. Since 2013, ReStore has sponsored at least 15 homes – totaling over $1 million!
We have a number of weekly sales and discounts!
Tuesday: the color tag discount increases by 20%
Wednesday: Senior Day! Anyone 55 or older can take 15% off their purchase (may not be combined with other larger sales going on that day).
Friday: Building Supply Sale. Take 50% off your purchase of applicable items: cabinets, countertops, flooring, lighting plumbing, tile, paint, lawn & garden, windows, doors, hardware & tool, and lumber (hint: everything except furniture, housewares, and appliances!)
Veterans and active-duty military may take 15% off their purchase any day (but may not be combined with any larger discounts)
The first Friday and Saturday of every month is also 50% off the entire store. These deals stack on top of any color tag discounts!
Each week, many of our items are priced with a colored price tag, and sold for full-price. Each additional week a color-tagged item is for sale, it’s price drops by 20% based on the color of its tag.
Example: a sofa is marked for sale one week at $100. If it doesn’t sell, the following Tuesday it will be 20% off; the following week 40% off; the next 60% off; then 80% off. If an item is for sale for 6 weeks, it will be marked free!
Check the Color Tag Sale sign in the vestibule, behind the cashier desk, or around the store to find the right discount for your item.
We cannot currently accept payment online, but we can make phone purchases using a credit card. In this case, we’ll mark your item “Sold” and you’ll have until the end of the following business day to pick it up. We will print an extra receipt, but we also try to email/text a copy to you.
We can hold unpurchased items for one hour. If an item is missing a price tag in the store, we will place it on a one-hour hold to ensure someone else in the store isn’t intending to buy it. If needed, purchased items may be held in the store for pickup until the end of the following business day.
