May 4 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
Morris Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore will be celebrating its 12thanniversary with a community party and storewide sale on Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fun-filled festivities will include food, giveaways, games and prizes, home improvement workshops for do-it-yourselfers, and extra promotions on already reduced merchandise at its 274 South Salem Street location in Randolph, N.J.
The ReStore is Morris Habitat for Humanity’s 30,000-square-foot retail home improvement outlet featuring new and second-hand merchandise ranging from furniture, home decor and appliances to building supplies, artwork, collectibles and more—all at reduced prices. Inventory is donated and changes daily with proceeds helping to fund Habitat’s mission of providing safe, decent and affordable housing for people in need in the community.
“There are so many treasures in-store, and this will be a great way for the public to experience all that the ReStore has to offer,” said ReStore Director, Ben Roberts. “We’re proud of what we’ve done for the community, but we want to give back to the community that has supported us as well.”
Attendees can enjoy free hot dogs, drinks, popcorn and cake, as well as games, giveaways, prizes and entertainment throughout the day. Meet and greet pets for adoption as well an author conducting a book signing. Free do-it-yourself workshops will include furniture repair and refinishing, along with how to patch sheetrock. Shoppers can enjoy up to 30 percent off all merchandise. Donations will be accepted all day.
“Everyone wins by shopping at our ReStore,” said Morris Habitat for Humanity CEO, Blair Schleicher Wilson. “Shoppers benefit by finding treasures at great prices and help others at the same time. Recycled items benefit the environment as well by diverting used goods from landfills.”
The ReStore originally opened in Mine Hill in 2007 and moved to its present location at Morris Habitat for Humanity headquarters in Randolph in 2014. The store recently expanded again to offer 30,000 square feet of home goods and introduced the new Collection, a department of fine items including high-end antiques, furniture, listed works of art, estate jewelry and other collectibles.
Since 2007 when the ReStore opened, sales and donations have helped build 23 homes in the community and diverted 8,500 tons of usable material out of landfills.
