While the ReStore is happy to accept good quality, new and gently-used materials, there are times when we cannot accept certain items due to age, condition, space, and marketability. 

  • "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. - ReStore Customer
