The Store That Builds Homes

ReStore_FrontThe Habitat for Humanity 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 homeownership.

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.

How Can I Support?

Volunteers (volunteers%2FReStore)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.

Waste Reduction

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.
