Coming soon – Grimsby ReStore!
The rumours are true! We’re opening our third ReStore in Grimsby in a few months! Located at 185 South Service Road in the former CanWeb building, along the QEW, it will be the highest visible store in our family, and perhaps Canada. With over 200,000 vehicles passing our store front daily, the awareness in the community will not only benefit Habitat’s mission but other neighbouring affiliates as well. It will also be our largest ReStore with over 19,000 square feet of space!
Since December, we have been gutting the inside of the building evolving it from a printing factory to a great retail store. A portion of the front area will house a new innovation centre workshop. Uses for this space will include: build training, pre fabrication and finishing building components as well as fixing and creating product for all our stores.
This ReStore will have all of the services and programs that our St.Catharines and Fonthill locations have: home improvement items for sale at 70% less than regular retail and NO HST, donation program, salvage program, and an e-waste program.
And did you know that the revenue generated from our ReStores pays for all of our administrative costs and helps to fund our home building program? Opening a third ReStore will give us the opportunity to build more homes and help more families across Niagara!
Along with a new ReStore comes a great need for volunteers and we are actively recruiting people to train and help out at our new location. Our ReStore volunteers assist with a number of different tasks including preparing donated materials for resale, sorting and pricing merchandise, product repair and cleaning, customer service, organizing and stocking shelves. We’re looking for individuals who are customer-service oriented, friendly and willing to help. So please spread the word!
