The Midcoast Habitat ReStore

Habitat ReStores frequently asked questions

What is Midcoast Habitat for Humanity ReStore?

Midcoast Habitat ReStores is a nonprofit home improvement stores and donation center. The items we sell are available to the public and similar to what you may see in other home good stores, such as a brand new box of tile you’ve been needing for your bathroom project or a vintage treasure you won’t find anywhere else. However, Habitat ReStores are more than just resell stores.

The purpose of Midcoast Habitat ReStores is to contribute to the work of Midcoast Habitat for Humanity. When you support our local ReStore by shopping, donating or volunteering, you are not only supporting your local community, you’re also helping the mission to provide decent shelter to everyone around the world.

What does a Habitat for Humanity ReStore sell?

Habitat ReStores tend to resemble a home improvement store — a very unique home improvement store. 

At the majority of ReStores you’ll find items that fit into the following categories: building materials, appliances and furniture. The items you’ll find will range from brand new to gently used, and there will likely be a wide range of brands and styles.

Of course, that’s not all you’ll find.

Because the inventory of each ReStore depends on donations, you never know exactly what you’ll find. We recommend heading our Restore today to see what’s in stock! (Of course, you may want to go back next week, too, to see what new items have arrived).

What donations does Midcoast Habitat ReStore accept?

Midcoast Habitat ReStore tend to accept household items or building materials, which can include a wide variety of products. ReStore donations come from all kinds of sources — from your neighbor after a finished home project to a large restaurant chain with old furniture after remodeling.
