Habitat for Humanity's ReStore to Help Build More Affordable Homes
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
It is a store that not only has low prices on home improvement items, but also gives back -- the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
"The ReStore is a retail outlet. We like to call ourselves a bargain store. It's to keep things out of the landfill," said Carolyn Smith of Habitat for Humanity. "Like you see the word recycle, restore. We try to repurpose things."
The ReStore takes items donated from the community -- everything from stoves to furniture and even bathroom sets -- and resells them to the general public for pennies on the dollar. The proceeds go to help build more affordable houses in the area.
On Wednesday, folks with the Young Business Professionals of the Coastal Bend were on hand to learn more about the ReStore as part of their Ideas Week campaign.
If you would like to visit the ReStore, it is located at 1901 Lipan Street.
