Yes, it's a great thing for folks on a budget to do repairs/remodeling.  It's also my choice for newspaper recycling as they have a collection bin there and they get a part of the value.  

Gita Bantwal, Restore is a 'retail' shop for Habitat for Humanity. Builders can donate left over materials, they'll take functional appliances, etc.  Not quite like a home improvement store with stock choices, but a great thing anyway.

I sometimes check garage/yard sales that are very popular in my area. And I do visit donation centers since I donate often and when I'm there, I check if I can find something I can restore. I'm in love with older era furniture.

Yes and we just donated a couple of items that a builder didn't use in a recent project we handled. New toilet, vanity and fixtures all going to a good cause!

Yes and my daughter loves to shop there. When we moved last year we donated a good bit to the store and hope they made lots of money on it.

I have. Ours is probably smaller than those in larger cities so it doesn’t have a lot of inventory.

I have worked with "Habitat' in many capacities, and there are two RESTOREs in my area. I have been to NONE of them. 

I don't like shopping and do like buying. So I go where I know what I need is in inventory.
