We are excited to announce the reopening of our Palm Harbor ReStore location! The grand opening of the third location will take place at 31541 US 19 N in Palm Harbor at 10 AM on February 15th. We invite you to join us! The first 100 shoppers at the grand opening will receive an exclusive coupon for 15% off a future purchase.
The Palm Harbor home improvement center is a retail-only location, focusing specifically on shoppers looking for great deals on new and gently used furniture, appliances, home décor and building materials. Those looking to donate to the ReStore are able to schedule contactless pick-ups online here or via phone at 727-209-2199.
The affiliate will continue to enforce COVID-19 safety protocols at all locations. Masks and social distancing continue to be required for all guests to protect shoppers and staff. After the grand opening, all locations will be open Monday – Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM.
“We are excited to reopen our Palm Harbor location, focusing on the retail aspect of the Habitat ReStore model,” said Mike Sutton, Habitat Pinellas and West Pasco president and CEO. “The ReStores are unique shopping outlets – carrying inventory that is often sought after by a contractor, interior designer, a homeowner looking to remodel or even the local DIY-er ready to do some upcycling.”
Habitat ReStores are retail centers where new and gently used building materials and home furnishings are sold at discounted prices. Inventory is always changing at each of the locations, thanks to partnerships with local businesses and donors.
“Shoppers can feel good about their purchases”, explains Sutton. “Proceeds from our ReStores support the home builds of families in the Habitat homeownership program. So when you purchase that great set of kitchen cabinets or a new couch at the ReStore, you are directly impacting a local family”.
Each year, the Habitat Pinellas and West Pasco ReStores sponsor a deserving family. The most recent ReStore-sponsored homeowner partner, the Rivera family, completed the program and closed on their home in New Port Richey last month.
At their home dedication, Cheroqui held back tears as she explained their journey from public housing to homeownership. Joshua, Cheroqui and their two young children had been living in public housing for the past six years, which was “an ongoing struggle.” Pests, plumbing issues, electrical unit problems – the constant concerns they faced are now behind them.
“When we learned about Habitat, we became determined and did whatever it took to be homeowners. Habitat came to us in a time where we thought hope was lost, but now we have our strength back and have built a place we can call home.”
