Habitat For Humanity Greenville County opens new 21k square feet ReStore in Greenville

December 14, 2022

On December 17, Habitat Greenville will celebrate the opening of its new ReStore. The new location covers 21.000 square feet of retail space.

Habitat ReStores are independently owned reuse stores operated by local Habitat for Humanity organizations. ReStores accept donations and sell a constantly changing inventory of diverse, high-quality merchandise to the public at a fraction of the retail price while diverting reusable household items and building materials from area landfills.

Sales of donated items help Habitat for Humanity partner with local families to build, rehabilitate and repair safe and affordable homes in Greenville County — a good deal for the community and the environment.

Habitat for Humanity Greenville County has two ReStores that generate about one-third of the local organization’s annual income, says Monroe Free, CEO and President of Habitat Greenville. “We can sponsor the build of six houses, just from the revenue from the ReStores,” Free says.

In 2022, Habitat will complete 14 homes and 55 repair projects.
