Habitat for Humanity ReSTORE Opens in New River Valley

The Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore opened this past Saturday here in Christiansburg and was a fantastic opening day success!  NRVliving.com‘s own Aaron Doyle, a Habitat for Humanity board member, posted about the store’s grand opening last week, and I’ve "recycled" her text below.  Make sure to check out the store – it’s a great opportunity to have them here in our area, and don’t forget to get involved.  Local volunteerism is the foundation of a healthy community!  And now, without further adieu, the post …

Take a little Home Depot and mix in some
Goodwill thrift store, and you get Habitat for Humanity’s newest home
improvement center concept: The "ReStore".  Habitat ReStores, home
improvement centers for new and used building supplies and housewares,
are cropping up all over the country.  While the size and availability
of products in each store differs, the basic concept is a store that
offers home improvement items at a fraction of retail value.  Most, if
not all, of the items are donated to the stores, then sold to the
public at reasonable prices.  The proceeds from all sales go toward
supporting Habitat for Humanity’s mission of building decent,
affordable housing with families in need.

The New River Valley is set to open its own ReStore on February 10,
2007, at the old Hill’s shopping center in Christiansburg, which most
recently housed Elements Home Furnishings & Memory Lane Antique
Mall (located at the junction of the Route 460 bypass and Route 11,
near Exit 118 at Interstate 81).  The NRV ReStore will feature new
items such as patio furniture, plumbing fixtures, and bathroom vanities
from "big-box" stores as well as used items from individual donors.
Tools – hardware – doors – windows – you name it!  Come out to the
grand opening on the 10th to see all of the awesome deals on home
improvement items.

If you have extra supplies around the house or are planning a
remodeling project, consider donating your items to your closest
Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  This is an excellent way to reuse or
recycle your materials!  For more information at the ReStore concept,
