Habitat's Re-Store Open for Business

It's a store for the home decorator or do-it-yourselfer, who may be looking for something different. The Habitat For Humanity Re-Store officially opened in Woodstock on Tuesday this week. You'll find it at 1058 Parkinson Road (in photo), just east of Springbank. Regional Habitat CEO Jeff Duncan explains what the store carries. "A building materials/household items type of store where we re-sell donated product. It could be new product, it could be used product, it could be refurbished product. Public and businesses donate that material to us. We get it in good shape sometimes...and turn around and sell it to the public at wholesale prices essentially at 40% or less of the initial value." Duncan says the Woodstock Re-Store has been highly anticipated, as donations were being dropped off in December, before they even had a sign up. "It's been incredible. We took possession of the space back in December from our landlord, and from the minute we took the keys...people started showing up with goods to donate." Funds from the sale of items goes towards paying Habitat's overhead costs, and put towards future builds. An announcement will be coming down in the spring on Habitat's next Woodstock build. They're currently seeking interested families for that home, as well as any help in fundraising, or building support for the project.
