Blog : Three Reasons to shop at SENH Habitat for Humanity ReStore

By Madelaine | Feb 25, 2014 | in

Southeast New Hampshire Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Newington is a non-profit that sells home improvement materials to benefit Habitat for Humanity. It offers appliances, used building materials, kitchen cabinets, tiles, fixtures, and other items for your home improvement projects. Its items are donated from manufacturers, stores, contractors, and individuals. Here are three good reasons to shop there:

1. Save Money. All items at ReStore are sold at 30% to 80% below retail price. While the prices are unbelievably low, the quality of the products is still top-notch. Since the items come from manufacturers and stores, most have simply been overstocked or discontinued. Some products are even brand new! Its gently used products also adhere to a high quality standard. ReStore’s non-profit status also allows them to offer lower prices than bigger, for-profit department stores.

2. Be Green. Not only can you save money at ReStore, you can reduce your carbon footprint. By purchasing recycled or overstock items, you’re giving a second and useful life to materials that could have ended up in a junkyard or landfill. Additionally, you are also saving the energy and resources used to produce new materials.

3. Support a Good Cause. All of ReStore’s proceeds benefit SENH Habitat for Humanity. This organization works to provide affordable housing to low-income families. To date, Habitat for Humanity has helped build and repair over 800,000 homes and served more than 4 million people around the world, including in your local community. It has been able to accomplish this through offering various volunteer opportunities and opening ReStore locations across the country. By purchasing from your local SENH ReStore, you directly contribute toward building affordable housing in Strafford & Rockingham Counties.
