INFORMATION FOR SHOPPERS
As an essential business offering building supplies and home improvement items, we are pleased to reopen to the public with increased health and safety protocols for staff and shoppers.
The ReStore is now open Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., with 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. reserved for elderly and immunocompromised shoppers. We are limiting the number of people in the ReStore to ensure social distancing.
Online shopping continues with new and additional inventory added every day.
For the health and safety of our customers and staff, we are promoting social distancing by limiting the number of shoppers in our store and by directing people to maintain at least six feet of distance between each other at all times.
Plexiglass dividers have been installed at the checkout and concierge stations.
All staff and volunteers are wearing masks. Customers are not required to wear masks, but we encourage non-vaccinated customers to wear a mask.
Shoppers may utilize the self-service bagging and wrapping station now located at the front of the store.
Cleaning and Disinfection:
While the ReStore has always followed strict protocols for cleaning and disinfection, we have implemented increased sanitary processes, including the sterilization of all incoming donations. Every donation is cleaned and sanitized; upholstery is further treated with Sterifab, a nonresidual spray that deodorizes as it disinfects and is EPA registered.
We continue to clean and disinfect the store and checkout areas multiple times a day for your safety.
A fully stocked sanitizing station is located at the front of the store.
Delivery, Curbside Pick Up and Returns
The ReStore continues with drive-up, curbside pickup. Delivery is now available. All returns have been suspended at this time. Please see a staff member for details.

Morris Habitat ReStore welcomes all offers of new or very gently-used items, but we reserve the right to refuse unsuitable donation drop-offs.

SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY—THE STORE THAT BUILDS HOMES
As a discount retail store offering new and gently-used building supplies, appliances, and home improvement products, the Morris Habitat ReStore is a nonprofit organization providing an essential service to the community.
Inventory is donated and profits are used to fund the building of homes for families in need by Morris Habitat for Humanity. The COVID-19 health crisis has become an economic crisis, and, now more than ever, families are in need of affordable housing and affordable places to purchase the items they need for their homes. The Morris Habitat ReStore is the answer to both, and we are proud to serve and support the community safely.
