Cheyenne, Wyoming: Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, a discounted home improvement outlet, has moved to a larger facility to better serve the community. The new facility, located at 715 E 15th Street, boasts over 17,000 square feet of retail and office space and will feature an expanded inventory of home improvement materials, tools, appliances, furniture, paint, décor, lawn and garden supplies and more.
The ReStore resumes normal business hours beginning March 2 and will be open Tuesday- Saturday from 9:00 am-5:30 pm.
“We were bursting at the seams!” said Habitat Director Kate Wright. “When space got tight, our staff had to turn donations away, causing frustration. We spent a lot of time listening to our customers and donors about what they wanted in a ReStore and our new facility meets a lot of the needs” added Wright. The new store features a large area for donation drop-offs and processing, ample off-street parking, and a floor plan that allows for easier shopping in distinct departments of the store.
The new ReStore, located one block south of Lincolnway, directly behind Baskin Robbins Ice Cream, was once a brick warehouse and salesroom has been remodeled over the past few months.
On the East end of the building, a public entrance from the off-street parking lot will welcome customers and pours in natural light. A brand new ADA bathroom was added as well.
On the West side of the building a larger loading dock and ramp were added for donations into a spacious processing area where items will processed for sale.
In the appliance department, plumbing and electrical features were installed so staff can test and repair appliance donations.
Widened doorways and wide ramps were installed to make the customer browsing experience easy and enjoyable.
The entire team at Habitat for Humanity is excited to welcome our ReStore customers back. The ReStore generates the revenue to pay the overhead expenses of the organization by selling items donated from the community and business partners.
The ReStore also benefits the community by helping our neighbors repair and maintain their homes in good repair at an affordable prices, and by being the community's go to location for DIY projects, and unique finds.
