Thanks to the generosity of donors in our community, we had a great selection of items that make our customers very happy. Both stores had a line of shoppers waiting patiently for 10:00 am to hit. Once the doors were open, the fun began. Customers were greeted by volunteers and staff as they poured into the sore ready to make the most of that 40% off. Some of you made a bee line for items that you had your eye on earlier in the week, making sure to take advantage of the great deal before anyone else. Others came to find hidden treasures they didn’t know they’d been missing. We had a great time chatting with shoppers and lending a helping hand with carry outs.
Not only is this sale beneficial for the environment because it keeps good reusable items out of landfills, but it also helps build homes for families in need. Together, both stores raised over $43,000 – pretty great when you remember that ReStore sales support Habitat Collier’s mission to build affordable homes in partnership with hardworking families. By shopping at Habitat Collier ReStores, you’re helping the environment and the community on Earth Day and every day!
