Habitat moves ReStore to downtown

Lawrence Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore has moved from west Lawrence to a location near downtown, 708 Conn.

“We felt like this was a better location. Even though we’re open to the public, this is a more accessible location on a main street,” said Katherine “K.H.” Harris, ReStore manager.

ReStore accepts new and used building materials, furniture and appliances and resells them to benefit Lawrence Habitat for Humanity. It opened in 2005 at a warehouse near Sixth Street and Monterey Way.

The doors at the new store opened Wednesday at the former furniture outlet on Connecticut Street. Staff members and volunteers are still transferring supplies from the old location, and the ReStore staff and volunteers have advertised Tuesday as the first major shopping day.

Harris said the store’s operation created a gross of about $200,000 for Habitat for Humanity last year. She hopes to improve that to $250,000 to $300,000 this year.

Recently went to "Restore" looking for cabinet pulls to match for a remodel addition. Didn't find the pulls I needed, but came away knowing this will be a very viable source in the future for other projects. Good luck, H4H!

Fat Daddy's finally went under, I suppose.

I may have to visit Restore.

I love all the excess building materials, I hve found so many things I didn't know I needed until I went in to the ReStore. Definitely a good deal for the dollar and it helps build homes in the long run!
