Our ReStore has grown to the second largest in the state of Colorado, with over 42 million pounds of home goods repurposed since 2006.
From humble origins — a 2,000 square foot rented storage unit — to our 40,500 square foot owned building completed in 2017, our ReStore has been serving our community since 2006.
Today, over 72,000 customers a year shop for donated furniture, building materials, appliances, and other household items for a fraction of the cost of purchasing new. We also stock new merchandise such as "scratch & dent" appliances, mattresses and other building supplies, making our ReStore a one-stop-shop for our region's home improvement needs.
Our ReStore builds homes
Revenue from the ReStore directly supports our mission by covering all of our overhead and administrative costs for our affiliate, thereby allowing all monetary donations and grant funding to go directly towards building affordable homes, thus helping local families transform their lives through affordable homeownership.
Serving the needs of our region
Contributing to the vitality of our communities, the ReStore serves families throughout our broad geographic area in multiple ways.
In addition to providing access to affordable home furnishings and appliances and hard-to-find building materials for repair or renovation, our ReStore also helps people who want to donate their home goods and receive both a tax benefit and the satisfaction of keeping usable goods our of landfills.
Our ReStore is the only facility in the 90-mile stretch from Aspen to Parachute that accepts used building materials and large quantities of appliances and used furniture. Our four trucks provide free pick-ups of donations throughout the area and also travel as far as Paonia, Grand Junction, and Denver for deliveries.
