ReStore had a banner 2016, ending the year with a record total of $100,000 in proceeds contributed directly to Habitat’s construction program. ReStore’s increased support was especially important this year for the Valatie Passive Townhouses project. While the property was donated, there were extra site preparation costs, including demolition and asbestos remediation.
ReStore’s big year began with the January launch of an additional 2500 sq. ft. of retail space, including a large area that features higher-end furniture and other special items. In response to customers’ requests, in the fall ReStore added a fourth full shopping day on Wednesdays and standardized its retail hours to 10 to 6. Veterans now receive a 5% discount on Thursdays and seniors get 5% off on Fridays.
