The York Habitat for Humanity ReStore has opened in the Queensgate Shopping Center.
The store opened on Saturday at 2001 S. Queen Street in York Township.
ReStore is a home improvement outlet that sells furniture, hardware, tools and other products donated for home improvement and maintenance. The items are sold at a lower cost than a standard department store. ReStore funds are used to fund projects the organization is working on across the community.
“The ReStore will create jobs, volunteer opportunities and keep valuable and usable materials out of landfill,” Tammi Morris, executive director of York Habitat for Humanity said in a press release.
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.
Donations are collected at the drop-off area behind the store, and arrangements can also be made for pickup from a person’s residence. The store is also looking for volunteers to collect donations, store shelves, help customers and various other tasks. Those who are interested can visit www.yorkhabitat.org.
York Habitat for Humanity is a Christian housing ministry that builds affordable housing for low-income people living in substandard housing conditions. The organization is funded primarily by private donations and government grants. York Habitat for Humanity has been around for 35 years and built its 138th home earlier this year. Over 3,250 volunteers work with York Habitat each year.
Habitat Humanity opened a ReStore store on Paxton Street in Harrisburg in 2013.
