We appreciate your patience and continued patronage as our remodel continues. We are looking forward to the official debut of the newly renovated and expanded retail space, as we hope you are. Mark your calendars now for the grand re-opening celebration (Saturday, June 25) and stay tuned for details as the date nears.

NEW NAME, SAME GREAT STORE
In conjunction with the grand re-opening, the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity Home Store will undergo a name change. We have adopted the name ReStore which is used by most of the 700 Habitat stores in the country. Going forward the name of our retail operation will be the Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
The ReStore remodel/expansion is picking up speed now that winter is behind us. The old ramps into the building have been removed and a new entry is being built. New loading docks on the back side of the building are almost complete, and a user-friendly customer donation drop-off area is being constructed near the new entrance. The entrance/exit changes often depending on the work being done, so please follow the temporary signs. We appreciate your patience! To see recent photos of the remodel, click here.
NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL FIND
Inventory changes fast at the Habitat ReStore and you never know what you'll find on any given day. Recently we received a very generous donation of commercial woodworking equipment from Rex Ballard. After 56 years, Rex and his wife decided to close Ballard's Appliance Company. In liquidating their inventory, they decided to donate some woodworking equipment they had used in the cabinet-making portion of their business. Most of the donation - which included items like a 36" belt sander - has been sold, but there are still a few table saws available. The ReStore is grateful for the generosity of Rex and Irene Ballard and we are happy that this equipment will be put to good use by ReStore customers.

Earth Day is April 22, 2011
The Asheville Area Habitat ReStore diverts more than 1,100 tons of reusable material from the landfill annually. We also recycle 80 tons of metal at Biltmore Iron and Metal annually. By shopping at the ReStore, donating your unwanted items and/or hiring our Deconstruction team, you are helping families in need of safe and decent housing and you are also helping the planet.
