On Friday, August 23, 2013, at 10 a.m., Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Harrisburg Area will be holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony for ReStore, a new store that will sell donated household items to help benefit Habitat for Humanity in the Capitol Region. ReStore is located at 800 Paxton Street in Harrisburg, the previous location of Troegs Brewery, and following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, ReStore will be open until 5 p.m. and then Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"We believe we found a spot which will be accessible to both the east and west shores." said Habitat for Humanity's Executive Director Eve Wachhaus. "The ReStore is a perfect way for the community to donate items no longer needed as well as a perfect place to shop for needed household items at greatly reduced prices."
After the opening weekend, ReStore will operate Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Individuals that wish to donate items to the store may do so between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on days when the store is open. Habitat for Humanity will also pick up donations by appointment by calling 545-7299. ReStore will accept donations of fixtures, furniture, appliances, tools and other treasures and offer them to the public at bargain prices.
