Retail with a mission

How restore is making a difference
for our local families.

Since 2004 our ReStores have generated over $1 million for Habitat Kent – that’s enough to build 9 homes!

Products are sold to the general public at prices 50-70% below average retail costs.

ReStore products may be used in the construction of Habitat homes to reduce material costs.

Because of ReStore donations in Kent County, we’ve diverted nearly 8 million pounds from the landfill.
