Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore encourages spring cleaning with discounts

Press release from Habitat for Humanity ReStore:

Asheville, NC (February 27, 2015) –Clear the clutter, empty your attic and take back your

garage! There is no better time than now to start your spring cleaning. To help motivate

Buncombe County residents, during the month of March the Habitat ReStore will give

merchandise donors a coupon for 25% off their total purchase during the week of Earth

Day (April 18-26, 2015). Donations are accepted at the Habitat ReStore, located at 33

Meadow Road near Biltmore Village, Monday through Saturday between 9am and 6pm. Or, for

larger items, call 828-254-6706 to schedule a free pick-up (within Buncombe County).

In addition to feeling good about giving usable items a new lease on life by donating them, you

can also feel good about supporting affordable housing; because that’s exactly what you do

when you donate to (or shop at) the Habitat ReStore. Proceeds from ReStore sales help fund

Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s building programs (new home construction and home

repair) and cover administrative and fundraising expenses.


Since 1990, the Asheville Habitat ReStore has provided the community with a source for

affordable, gently used—and sometimes new—building materials, furniture, appliances,

housewares, books, art and much more. And thanks to this community’s strong commitment to

reuse, the ReStore diverts 1,500 tons of usable materials from landfills annually. To learn more
