A big thank you to our loyal customers who helped make Earth Day extra green this year! We celebrated with an Earth Day sale at both Habitat Collier ReStores that offered 40% off storewide.

It was great to see shoppers lined up outside our doors up to 3 hours before doors opened with folding chairs and coffee in hand to secure their spot in line. They came for double ovens, chandeliers, hard wood flooring and vanity cabinets. They came for artwork, armoires, dining tables and patio sets. The savviest shoppers had visited the store in the days before the sale to scout out their most coveted finds, in hopes that they would still be there during the big sale. ReStore staff got the crowd excited and laid the ground rules to make sure everything went smoothly. Then doors opened! Shoppers rushed to their picks, thrilled to reach them before the deals were snagged up by other shoppers.

At our Home Improvement location on Yahl Street, we had an extra special treat– Y100.1’s Big D kept customers entertained with music and a prize wheel that customers could spin to win some great giveaways.

The sale was such a success that we added a second day of savings at both stores! In total, more than $75,000 worth of merchandise was sold in two days. We’re extremely appreciative of our dedicated volunteers who played key roles, helping to greet customers and answer questions, ring the register, assist customers to their cars, and even accept drop-off donations.

The great part about this sale is that it not only helps the environment by keeping some great reusable items out of our landfills, but it also helps build homes for families in need. Like all proceeds from our ReStores, the funds generated from our Earth Day Sale will be used to help Habitat for Humanity build safe and decent homes. With net revenues of over $45,000, our shoppers can feel even better about their Earth Day purchases.
