Habitat For Humanity Restore

Des Moines has a wonderful store that is called Habitat For Humanity Restore.  The store receives home improvement donations from the public as well as big box stores.  In return, Habitat For Humanity Restore sells the products and proceeds go back to Habitat For Humanity.

This is a great store for your remodeling projects!  This store carries new and salvaged items such as doors, paint, cabinets, granite counters, toilets, windows, flooring, lighting, rugs, bathtubs and more.  I have purchased paint and painting supplies from there and everything was new.  You can find some salvaged doors, registers and more for your older homes.

Here are just a few of the great home projects you can shop for at ReStore!
