Every community values local businesses and Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona is no exception. Habitat is opening its newest and largest ReStore retail store at 3210 S. McClintock Dr., Tempe, the northwest corner of Southern and McClintock. The Grand Opening with Ribbon Cutting is being held Saturday, April 21st on Earth Day.
Reuse, Recycle, ReStore: A host of Earth Day activities will kick off the store’s Grand Opening Day, including a Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 8 a.m., when the doors open for shopping. KTAR’s popular home show “Rosie on the House” will broadcast live and entertain guests from 7 to 11 a.m. As an added bonus, Cartel Coffee will be on-site sharing their special brew with visitors. The first 100 people will receive special Earth Day gift bags. Refreshing treats and culinary specialties will be available from some of the Valley’s most popular food trucks.
Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit retail home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture to the public, in addition to appliances, home accessories, building materials, paint, electrical and plumbing supplies, and more…all at a fraction of the retail price. This will be the fourth and largest Habitat ReStore location in Greater Phoenix, and the only ReStore location in the East Valley. More details can be found at habitatcaz.org/restore.
Jason Barlow, president and CEO of Habitat, said, “Donations to ReStores save consumers money and raise valuable funds that contribute to Habitat’s mission of revitalizing neighborhoods and providing affordable housing for underserved areas. Phoenix-area ReStores have kept 30 million pounds of usable products from being unnecessarily discarded into Arizona landfills. The Tempe ReStore is our new flagship store that will carry an outstanding selection of merchandise we believe will attract residents throughout the Valley.”
When customers first visit ReStores, most are surprised to see the range of new and gently used merchandise available, including washers, dryers, refrigerators, dishwashers, tubs, flooring, paint, carpeting, doors, cabinets, lighting fixtures and home furnishings. Habitat ReStore merchandise is donated from local contractors, individuals, businesses and partner retail stores. Proceeds from sales help support Habitat’s mission to revitalize communities and eliminate substandard housing in Central Arizona.
Habitat welcomes new and gently used donations from individuals and businesses. Call 623-551-6000 to schedule a free pick-up or visit online at habitatcaz.org/restores.
