What are Habitat ReStores and how do they help my community?

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are home and building supply outlets that accept and resell new and gently used building materials.

Shopping is a socially conscious decision, as funds generated are used to fund local Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta affordable homeownership program.

It's also an environmentally conscious decisions, as much of what is sold is product that is new, gently used or customer returns that would otherwise end up in the landfill. 

What is the origin story of the Habitat ReStore?

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 four locations in Southern Alberta with two physical stores in Calgary, another in Medicine Hat, and an online ReStore for those days that you feel like looking for a good deal (but don't want to leave the house)! 

What can I expect to find at Habitat ReStore?

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.

“This is a great place to both shop and donate to. Whether you need to make little improvements around your house, or you need furniture or large appliances, check them out. Very effective customer service too, which is much appreciated.” - Kevin. C, Habitat ReStore customer
