Asheville Area Habitat opened a retail store (Home Store) in 1990 and it was located on Biltmore Avenue until it moved to its current 31 Meadow Road location in 2003. After a significant renovation and expansion in 2011, the store was renamed Habitat ReStore. ReStore is the name used by most other Habitat affiliates around the country. In 2013, the Asheville Habitat ReStore ranked #3 in sales out of 775 ReStores nationwide!
The ReStore sells donated items to the general public. Proceeds help cover Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity’s administrative and fundraising expenses and provide funding for its building programs. Along with Habitat homeowner mortgage payments and Habitat’s Deconstruction program, the ReStore represents a sustainable funding source for Asheville Area Habitat. Furthermore, the ReStore provides the community with a source for affordable home improvement items and it diverts 1,400 tons of usable material from the landfill each year.
