FAQ About the ReStore

A ReStore is a non-profit, retail business that utilizes donations from individuals, businesses, and manufacturers. Donations such as new and reusable appliances and building materials are cleaned, tested, and resold to the general public. The items are sold at 50-70% below market value benefiting families with homes in need of renovation and improved energy efficiency.
The ReStore revenues are used to support Habitat for Humanity York County's mission of building homes for hardworking, low income families in York County.
The ReStore is open Wednesday through Saturday from 9am-5pm. The ReStore can be contacted Wednesday through Saturday at 207-502-7021.
