"We donate to the Habitat ReStores because it means a hard-working family receives their very first key to their very first house. How much better does it get than helping fulfill a dream of homeownership?" -Jason, Manager - Home Depot
What is a ReStore? Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region owns and operates two ReStore outlets in Waterloo Region. A ReStore is a retail store concept that accepts donations of overstocked, seconds, used, discontinued items and salvageable building materials donated by manufacturers, stores, contractors and individuals. Items can include new and gently used furniture, building materials, appliances, cabinetry, sinks, countertops, household and décor items. The ReStore then sells those items to the public at a reduced cost, typically 50-80% off the original retail value. Pretty cool, huh? We then sell these donations back to the public and the monies raised cover 100% of Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region’s administrative costs. Learn more.

"This is my go to place for obscure parts and items. I despise throwing good items and supplies in the garbage simply because I no longer have a use for them. I'm also thrifty...OK cheap. I love getting deals here on good quality, clean renovation supply items and appliances. Staff are friendly, helpful and offer imaginative suggestions on how to repurpose surplus materials." - Dan M
"By far the best Restore in the KW region. I have been to the others. Quality, choice and prices of stock in here is really good. You will not find a better restore around in my opinion." - Alan Ó Góillidhe
"Best place to find things you may need for your home at half the price elsewhere." - Nikki Werkzwell
