Press release from Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity:
Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity is excited to announce that it will open a second Habitat ReStore in Weaverville in late summer 2019. The ReStore will lease the space currently occupied by ACE Hardware, who is moving across the street. Though smaller than the flagship Asheville store, the Weaverville store will offer much of the same merchandise – used furniture, housewares, appliances, building supplies, art and more. There will be a donation drop-off lane and plenty of parking. Hours will be 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
“We are bursting at the seams, and have been looking for quite some time for an ideal second location. We are thrilled to have found this perfect site in the northern part of the county and look forward to being part of the Weaverville community,” said ReStore General Manager, Scott Stetson.
One of the first Habitat ReStores in the country, the Asheville Habitat ReStore opened in 1990 on Biltmore Avenue where it remained for thirteen years. After a major renovation of the donated Pearlman Carpet warehouse, the ReStore settled into its existing site at 33 Meadow Road near Biltmore Village in 2003. Today, the Asheville Habitat ReStore is a leader among 900+ Habitat ReStores nationwide, garners annual recognition as best Used Furniture Store (non-profit) in the Mountain Xpress’ Best of WNC, and has become a destination for shoppers across Buncombe County.
Details about a Grand Opening celebration will be forthcoming. Stay tuned!
