What is a ReStore?

This Habitat for Humanity ReStore is proudly owned and operated by Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County to serve our mission of building homes, communities and hope.

At the Habitat ReStore, our staff and volunteers happily accept donations of new and gently used items. We sell those items to treasure hunters and bargain shoppers alike to raise money for our mission of eliminating substandard housing. The Habitat ReStore provides a more affordable avenue for home improvement projects, all while keeping tons of perfectly good items from ending up in the landfill.

[Steve Thomas] For years you have seen me building and renovating houses on television and now I'm working with Habitat for Humanity. [Image of a build site. Man uploads truck] Why? Because I deeply believe in habitat vision - a world in which everyone has a decent place to live. And the Habitat for Humanity ReStore helps make that happen. [Man hands Steve Thomas a lamp]

[Steve Thomas in large warehouse size room with appliances, couches, armoires, people shopping.] If you haven't ever been to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore, you owe it to yourself to check one out. Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture [Family sitting on couch], home accessories [man looking at lamps], building materials [two men carrying double french doors], and appliances [man moving a clothes washers on a hand truck] to the public at a fraction of the retail price. [Couple looking at large armoire]. From funky, vintage finds [to women carrying artificial flowers and a suit of armor, they say, “found him”], to “nearly new” construction supplies [two men moving a full pallet of flooring.] Restores are a treasure hunter’s paradise [Man holds up a piece of fabric that has images of the music group The Beatles]. [US map] You'll find Habitat Restores in communities all across the country.

Here's how it works. Shop. Donate. Volunteer.. [Images of people in restore. People on a build site carrying wood trusses.] We’re helping to build and renovate homes with families in your community and around the world.

[Steve Thomas on screen in a Restore] What's in a habitat restore? How about a ceiling fan? [man carrying a ceiling fan] How about a fridge? [man moving a fridge.] Nice fridge! How about a golf game? [Vintage style full size video arcade game] Or a little golfer? Or maybe two of them? [Steve Thomas sits between two small bronze Statues of golfers and pats their heads]

[Steve stands with a woman and each is carrying a shovel posing as farmers.] Need a shovel?

[Woman says] how about 938? [Behind them are boxes with hundreds of shovels.]

How about a sink? [sink] How about a sofa? [sofa] And here’s my favorite find. [Steve holds up a large oversized wrench about 2 feet long.] The mother of all adjustable wrenches. [A man walks up and says, “Where did you get that”.] [ Steve answers] Habitat ReStore.

[Steve drives up to a ReStore unloading dock in a red pickup truck.] So you need to make some more room in your house? We can help you with that one too. [A man take some things out of the truck bed].

Whether you are remodeling, redecorating or just cleaning out your storage space, we’ll be glad to take that extra stuff off your hands. [images of people driving up to a Habitat ReStore drop-off dock and volunteers taking out furniture and housewares.] You get to free up space and we get to raise more money to build more Habitat homes. [Workers on a job site raising a wood framed wall.] And how about that attic? [Volunteers unloading donations.] Donations from individuals and businesses give reusable items and materials a second life and reduce waste and landfills. Habitat Restores are a good deal for you and your community and the environment. Habitat volunteer shaking a donor’s hand.]
