The Store That Builds Homes
The ReStore is a building supply and home renovation store that accepts and resells new and gently-used building materials and home décor items. Proceeds from the ReStore fund Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia, which constructs Habitat homes for hard-working low income families in the Province. Supporting the ReStore supports deserving families to achieve the dream of affordable housing.
Everything You Need
Serving as a “thrift-shop” for reusable materials, the ReStore offers a great place to purchase good, resalable building materials at very reasonable prices. You never know what you will find. Everything in store is priced up to 50% off retail and you pay no HST.
ReStores help the environment by diverting thousands of tons of usable materials away from already overflowing landfills. The Habitat for Humanity NS ReStore offers a practical response to the current landfill crisis. Stores and manufacturers can donate end-of-line, scratch and dent, old stock and customer returns that might otherwise be sent to landfills; individuals can donate unneeded materials and furnishings.
How Can I Support ReStore?
Donate new and used building materials to the Habitat ReStore and receive a charitable donation receipt for the fair market value of the items. By donating your materials, you can also avoid dumping charges. Get FREE salvage help – the ReStore has an experienced crew of volunteers to help remove salvaged materials on larger jobs – donate your kitchen cabinets and we will remove them free of charge* AND give you a tax receipt (*deconstruction & pick-up service only available within Halifax municipality at this time). The Habitat NS ReStore currently has more than 97 volunteers who work 1 or more days each week.
If you want to contribute and are not feeling like leaving the house, give us a call or donate online – we pickup for free! Below is our Hotline Express phone number for donations over the phone as well as a link to our Online Donation Form and the list of donations we are currently not accepting.
To donate over the phone call:
Our ReStores are experiencing a high volume of calls for donation pick-ups, which means we are not able to respond as quickly as we would like. Please bare with us – please leave a message on our donation line and we will call you back as soon as we can. Thank you so much for your patience!
