Open to the Public
What is a Restore and how does it work?
The Greater Lowell Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a store located in Tyngsborough, MA which sells new and gently used items to the public. All items are donated to the ReStore and are a tax deductible contribution. Once cleaned and priced, the items are then sold to the public at steeply discounted prices. Whenever possible, appropriate items are set aside for the construction of Habitat homes. Income from the ReStore generates funding to build more homes.
All funds raised by the ReStore provide direct support of Habitat for Humanity’s mission of providing simple, decent, affordable housing in the community. You can help!
ReStore’s mission is to:
– Generate funds to build more affordable homes in the Greater Lowell area, incorporating our Christian based principles and allowing more hard-working, low-income families in the community the chance of homeownership.
– Provide new and gently used home improvement materials and household goods and appliances at affordable prices to people of all income levels.
– Be Green! By keeping useable building materials, home improvement products and appliances out of local landfills saving valuable space, time and money.
YOU can help!
We need YOU to help us today with our ReStore! There are three ways you can help our ReStore succeed and prosper: Donate, Shop, and/or Volunteer!
Donating gently used items to the ReStore is a great way to go green while doing good! We accept donations of new and gently used building materials and fixtures in good condition from individua
ls, contractors, builders, remodeling jobs, retailers, business closeouts, and manufacturers. These good quality items are sold to the general public at a fraction of retail prices, with all profits used for building affordable homes in the Greater Lowell community.
Whether you drop off your donation or we pick it up, we’ll gladly give you a receipt for your records and tax-purposes since Habitat is a registered 50IC3 organization.
Restore has a large inventory of inexpensive, high-quality items-building materials, construction supploes, appliances, books, art, lighting, cabinets and furniture. Visit the store Tue-Friday 9am-7pm and Saturday 9am-4pm to see what’s new!!
