ReStores are home and building supply outlets that accept and resell new and gently used building materials. Shopping is a social conscious decision, as funds generated are used to fund local Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta affordable home ownership program. It's also an environmentally conscious decisions, as much of what is sold is project that is new, gently used or customer returns that would otherwise end up in the landfill.
Habitat for Humanity opened the first ever ReStore in Winnipeg, Manitoba back in 1991, and the concept has grown exponentially since then. Today, there are over 100 Habitat ReStores across Canada and more than 1,000 worldwide, all raising funds to enable more families to partner with us and access affordable home ownership.
We have three locations in southern Alberta with two stores in Calgary and one store in Medicine Hat.
Every Habitat ReStore is different, offering a unique shopping experience for those looking to add something new to their homes. Inventory is always changing, as new items are donated by local residents and businesses daily.
Customers can expect to find thousands of products at Habitat ReStores — including furniture, appliances, paint, doors, lighting, home décor and more—all at 40 - 80% below regular retail prices. Besides a great selection of the products at all three locations, you won’t pay a cent of GST! That’s right; everything in the store is tax-free.
“Always love coming to this store just to see what’s new. This place has a ton of new stock almost every day. It also feels good buying from here as its saving materials from the dump and goes towards supporting Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta.”
- Johnny, ReStore Customer
