Building Community Blog

As many of you know, we launched a new blog featuring our ReStore stories, projects, staff, volunteers, and events. In order to make sure you still receive the highlights of what's happening at our ReStores, we publish a "ReStore Recap", in order to give you an overview of all the great posts being published over at The ReStoration Corner.

Until his retirement a few months ago, Anthony worked in architecture and engineering with Target Corp. That background made him a perfect fit for helping Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity build out its newest ReStore. Specifically, Anthony used his building experience to help organize and supervise the volunteers who transformed the new ReStore from empty warehouse into one of the nicest ReStore’s in the country.

We have a fun announcement to share with all of our loyal blog readers. A few of you may have noticed that there has been a shortage of ReStore-related blog articles on our Building Community Blog lately—and you'd be correct. We've been in the process of creating a ReStore-only blog, The ReStoration Corner, that features ReStore events, fun DIY projects and much more!

You’re invited to 2700 Minnehaha Ave, September 15-17, to celebrate the Grand Opening of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s newest ReStore. ReStore is Habitat’s discount home improvement outlet. Open to the public, ReStore carries new and gently used building materials, cabinets, appliances, furniture, flooring, plumbing, hardware, lighting, tools, and more, all at 50% - 70% off retail prices. 

Twin Cities businesses have stepped forward with pro bono labor and gifts-in-kind, as construction starts for Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity’s new ReStore in South Minneapolis. Located at 2700 Minnehaha Avenue, this is Habitat’s second ReStore in the Twin Cities (the original store is located in New Brighton).

The store, a discount home improvement outlet, is slated to open to the public in mid-September. “We’re excited about the new ReStore,” says Susan Haigh, President & CEO of Twin Cities Habitat. “ReStore is good for the environment and good for families. Earned income from ReStores helps Habitat build more homes with affordable mortgages that low-income families can buy."
