Habitat for Humanity held a ribbon cutting Thursday morning for their newest ReStore location. This one is at 1659 Woodruff Road. 

I caught up with President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Greenville, Monroe Free, who told me how important the ReStore locations are to the overall operation.

He also talked about where the inventory for ReStore comes from.

The new Woodruff Road location is the relocation of the Simpsonville ReStore, formerly located at 10017 Pelham Point in Simpsonville. Habitat Greenville is excited about the new store and hopes that a more central location will allow the ReStore to better suit the needs of their donors, shoppers and volunteers. Donor Appreciation Day will be Friday, July 20th, with recent donors receiving an additional percentage off their purchases.

According to Mark Steenback, Director of ReStore Operations, “Habitat Greenville is proud to add the new Woodruff Road location and expand the reach of the ReStores while maintaining the same great quality of new and used goods that our customers have come to love and expect from our stores. Our grand opening weekend is a fun and exciting time for the community to explore the mission of Habitat and be a part of empowering local families withstrength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.”

Funds generated through the ReStore’s sale of new and lightly used donations support Habitat’s Greenville’s mission of creating affordable homeownership opportunities for families in need in Greenville County. The ReStore accepts donations of appliances, furniture, household goods, and construction supplies. A full list of their donation guidelines and information about requesting a free donation pickup can be found online at www.habitatgreenville.org/restore/about-the-restores.

The new location will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 6:00 pm. The Woodruff Road ReStore joins the existing Taylors ReStore at 3033 Wade Hampton Boulevard as the two locations owned and operated by Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County.
