ReStore celebrates one year at new location
The expanded showroom is a draw for customers and donors
Time flies when you donate, buy, sell and build. The Habitat ReStore Vail Valley is celebrating its one-year anniversary at the new location at 250 Lindbergh Drive in Gypsum. The ReStore will celebrate May 31 to June3 with giveaways, fun events and sales. As a matter of fact, this sale just may be the best sale ever — and at least of the year.
The expanded showroom in Gypsum, has become a must-shop for those looking to update their homes — some who regularly stop in from as far away as North Dakota and California.
“This year has been incredible. Because of our new location with expanded showroom space, we have seen sales increase by 31% from last year. The bright new space – with two floors of inventory – has the feel of an upscale showroom but with affordable prices. Our larger space allows us to accept more donations – which means more inventory for shoppers,” shares Ann Logel, ReStore manager. “We have such strong community supporters from shoppers to donors — which means we also get to build more homes.”
The ReStore is a win-win-win. The store accepts donations of high-quality housewares, furnishings, building materials and more, which are then sold for a fraction of retail prices. The proceeds from those sales are funneled right back into the community, to Habitat Vail Valley’s home building efforts. In 2023, Habitat will build 24 homes – triple the on-average annual number.
In 2022 alone, the Habitat ReStore Vail Valley kept almost five tons of quality usable items out of the landfill. The ReStore offers free pickups from donors, which is especially helpful for those who move into a furnished home but don’t want the furniture.
“We have seen more donations come through the doors this year — and they are such high quality,” Ann continues. “We’ve had everything from antiques and collectors’ items to dining sets and artwork. It doesn’t tend to last for long once it reaches the sales floor, so it’s really never the same store twice.”
While the ReStore may be known for its secondhand housewares and building materials, it also sells new mattresses and box springs.
