What is a Habitat ReStore?
ReStore is a resale business that sells new and used building materials and home improvement items to the general public. All materials are donated by local retail businesses, building contractors, suppliers and individuals, and are made available for sale to the public at 50% to 90% below retail prices.
All donations are tax deductible, and proceeds generated from the ReStore benefits the mission of Oneida County Habitat for Humanity to build, renovate and revitalize simple safe, decent and affordable homes for low income, disabled and elderly families and homeowners.
