ReStore FAQs

 

What is a Habitat ReStore?

A Habitat ReStore accepts new and used furniture, home décor, building materials, appliances and more from individuals, retailers, businesses and contractors. These good-quality items are sold to the general public at a fraction of retail prices, with all proceeds going to Greenwood Area Habitat for Humanity. 

How often does the ReStore get new materials?

Daily! We receive donations every day we are open.

How are items priced at the ReStore?

Brand new items are priced approximately 50% OFF of retail value; other items, depending on condition, are priced between 50% to 90% off retail value.

Can we negotiate prices with the ReStore?

No. Our ReStore does not negotiate prices with customers. We have a color coded mark down system in place. All color tagged items ($2.00 and up) that have been in the store for a full month will go down in price on the 1st of each month. The price will drop each month starting at 25% the first month, dropping 50% the second month and then 75% off the third month! There are always great deals to be found!

Do you use the donated materials to build Habitat homes?

No. Materials donated to the ReStore are sold in the ReStore. The proceeds are used to purchase brand new materials for each Habitat home.

Do I get a tax receipt for donating?

Yes! The ReStore is part of Greenwood Area Habitat for Humanity, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  

Will the ReStore put a value on the items I donate?

IRS regulations prohibit us from placing a value on a donation as this is the responsibility of the donor. We recommend documenting and taking pictures of all donations for your own records. 

Does the ReStore do refunds?

No. You may receive a store credit for non-working electronics and appliances within seven days of purchase. Merchandise will be retested before a store credit is given. Store credit will not be given without the original sales receipt. 

 

Are all ReStores the same?

No. Each ReStore is individually operated by the Habitat for Humanity affiliate office in that area. Merchandise, prices, policies, promotions, store hours, etc., may vary by location.
