GRAND RE-OPENING FEATURES MAYOR, DOOR PRIZES
spite of a rainy Saturday morning the ReStore successfully celebrated its
2013 Grand Re-Opening. Mayor Bennett was on hand to congratulate
Habitat for the progress
made and to encourage our continuing efforts. Mayor Bennett also
surprised us with a city donation of $500 for the ReStore home build which
is being kicked off next weekend.
Habitat ReStore is the Title Sponsor for the upcoming build.
All funds raised by the ReStore and its staff through other fund
raising efforts from now through September will be applied to the cost of
material and services involved in building the new home at 930 Gilbert
Avenue here in Terre Haute.
addition to the $500 building contribution from the city, door prizes
including gift certificates and merchandise were donated by Ampacet
Corporation, Central TV, Dawg Leg Restaurant, Jeannie's TV and Appliances,
Rural King, Starbucks, Subway, and The Beauty Shop. Drawing for the
door prizes will extend throughout this week (June 5 through June 8) with 2
or 3 prizes being awarded each business day. Be sure to stop in, shop,
and register for a door prize. All entries throughout the week will be
included in each drawing. You need not be present to win.
RECENTLY FEATURED ITEMS
We are showing the modular office
furniture on the left in its largest configuration. But, the pieces
can be moved around to fit many space settings and task
requirements. We are currently storing the pieces off-site. But, the
new cashiering area at the ReStore has been furnished with the same
furniture. If you have the space and the need for lots of flat
surface space, this unit is the one for you!
The sleigh bed on the right is so special
we had to add it as a Special Feature this week. Priced at just $200
this beautiful queen-size sleigh bed would make a wonderful addition
to any bedroom large enough to handle it. If you have time, please
stop by to look at it.
Remember, we are open Wednesday through Saturday, 9-2pm and until
6pm on Friday.

Footnote on donations:
While we totally agree that "one man's trash is another
man's treasure", we sometimes don't have the space to hold onto that
treasure until the right treasure hunter comes along. New building
materials, good reclaimed building materials, appliances in good working
order, cabinets in good condition, and furniture in good condition are in
high demand and sell quickly. Therefore, we try very hard to find room for
them. However, old windows and doors, old toilets, bathtubs, and
showers take up a lot of space. We may have to turn such donations
down on occasion.
