ReStore RecapCheck out what's been happening over on The ReStoration Corner blog this past spring and summer! The ReStoration Corner features ReStore events, fun DIY projects, and more.

Clearing out those unneeded items

At our Minneapolis and New Brighton ReStores, we are constantly amazed by the generosity of businesses and individuals in our local community. Here are some of the donations that we've featured:

Students stepping up and making an impact

We love working with local youth, and our ReStores provide a great opportunity for volunteer work, and for great educational introduction into real-world business partnerships and solutions.

Our Volunteers are Amazing

Nothing compares to the energy and enthusiasm our volunteers bring to the store with them each and every day. We recently had members of the U.S. Navy join us in store, and we want to encourage everyone to give it a try!
