Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley ReStore

Head over to our Habitat ReStore first when you’re in the market for home furnishings and construction supplies! Not only do you get a great deal, but your purchase helps build more Habitat homes. The ReStore is open to the public, and everyone from homeowners to landlords and contractors is encouraged to take advantage of the selection and great prices. The price of merchandise is typically 30-75 percent off of retail for both brand new and gently used merchandise. By donating, shopping or volunteering at The Habitat ReStore, you are supporting families in the Roanoke area who need safe, decent and affordable housing.


Everyone loves the ReStore home improvement outlet! It’s stocked with new flooring and tile as well as new and reclaimed building materials, plumbing supplies, furniture, cabinets, appliances, lamps, artwork, area rugs, carpet squares, paint, lighting, masonry, doors, windows, countertops, gardening supplies, architectural salvage and other indoor and outdoor items for your home, office or rental property. ReStore is open to the public, so visit their new location at 3435 Melrose Ave., NW. Dogs and pets are welcome to come and shop with you, and there is usually a line of pet items available for purchase! The store is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Don’t forget to ask about the rewards program!


Want to donate to ReStore? The ReStore accepts new and reclaimed building materials, furniture and appliances in good working condition then sells your recycled merchandise to raise funds that enable them to build more Habitat homes right here in the Roanoke Valley! You can drop off your donation at the ReStore at your convenience, and the friendly staff will give you a hand with your items, and also make sure you receive a receipt for your donation for tax purposes. If you have large, heavy or bulky items, just call 540.767.2267 to schedule a free pickup from your home or office.


You’ve got the right stuff! Whether you’re new to the job market, or you’ve been around the block a few times, there’s a place for you at the ReStore. Most nonprofit organizations need a core group of volunteers to keep their mission going strong, and Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore is no different! They love having dedicated, recurring volunteers who help out in the Habitat ReStore. Revenue from the ReStore helps fund the mission of Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. The ReStoreCorps is on the front lines of making this mission possible. If you’d like to sign up to help, please call the volunteer coordinator at 540.344.0747, ext. 110, or send an to Volunteer@Habitat-Roanoke.org.
