ReStore is a retail outlet where donated building materials and a variety of home improvement merchandise are sold at 30-75% below retail prices.

Yes, we also have a Deconstruction program. This is an in-house recycle/reuse program and a huge service to our community as well. This is where we can do light deconstruction for someone who is renovating a kitchen or major deconstruction for someone who is demolishing a house or building. In essence we can take apart cabinets and countertops or capture doors with frames and windows.
