Why the ReStore?
The ReStore is a great place to find new, gently used and reconditioned supplies for virtually any kind of project you have around your home or office. Of course, you could wander around one of the big box stores looking for what you want, but when you shop at the ReStore you're helping Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity build our community. Our inventory changes every day so be sure to come by often.
The ReStore began as an LLC (Limited Liability Company) in 2004 with 9,857 sq. ft. originally leased from Michael Garman Studios, and has since expanded to its present size of 37,800 sq. ft. In 2009 PPHFH purchased the property, creating a permanent home for the ReStore. The LLC was dissolved in 2016 to bring it under the administration of PPHFH as a program, specifically a social impact business. Most of the inventory is donated by individuals and businesses throughout El Paso County. The store is staffed primarily by volunteers, allowing more of the store’s revenue to go toward building Habitat homes for qualified families.
The ReStore helps keep tons of material out of the landfill - 1,304 tons of material in 2019 - and recycles porcelain (which goes to creating road base for the city), metal, and cardboard, generating more revenue for building houses. In 2018, the ReStore became a state-certified paint recycling collection center as part of PaintCare, a nonprofit stewardship organization, to provide our community with a convenient and environmentally responsible way to recycle unused paint.
Our ReStore is recognized by Habitat for Humanity International and Habitat affiliates nationwide for its achievements. In 2018 and 2020, the Colorado Institute for Social Impact / Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado presented PPHFH’s ReStore with the “Social Impact Business of the Year” PRISM Award acknowledging the ReStore’s successful program.
When you shop at the Pikes Peak Habitat ReStore, you help low-income families in El Paso County purchase safe, permanent, and affordable homes. Net proceeds from the ReStore provide permanent, affordable housing for qualifying future Habitat homeowners. Your donations help, too, by providing the ReStore with a full inventory of building materials, cabinets, home furnishings, lighting, and more for other shoppers to buy. It’s a real treasure trove for DIY projects! And, did you know your donation is tax deductible? Charitable donation receipts are provided for your donations.
We encourage you to donate your gently used items to our ReStore. Please pull into the ReStore's south lot where our receiving staff and volunteers will happily take your generous donations. Thank you for supporting the mission of Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity and helping to build more permanent, affordable housing!
