ReStore

A Good Deal for You and Your Community

ReStore is a retail store like none other, with two convenient Appleton locations. Anyone can donate and purchase new and gently used building materials and household items. ReStore saves you money while making a positive impact to our community. The profits from your purchases and donations directly support Fox Cities Habitat’s mission to help low-income families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. It’s a good deal for you, your community and the environment.

ReStore is continually receiving new and gently used donations, so every time you come back, our inventory is fresh and there’s another treasure to be found. ReStore often features affordable new and used items like:

  • Couches, tables, dressers and other furniture
  • Flooring – tile, vinyl, carpeting
  • Paint and paint supplies
  • Lamps, art and other home goods
  • Building materials and tools
  • Windows and doors
  • Counter tops and appliances
  • Bathroom cabinets, vanities, toilets, sinks and fixtures
  • Everything, including the kitchen sink!

As a do-it-yourselfer (DIY), we put the resources and tools in your hands. Whether you’re buying or donating, ReStore is for everyone. Enjoy wandering through our aisles onsite in one of two Appleton ReStore locations or shop in the convenience of your own home online.

Donate Instead of Dispose

Donating to the Appleton Habitat ReStore is a sustainable, environmentally savvy way to pass along items you no longer need.

It prevents useful items from ending up in the landfill while going to another family who will give it a loving home. Your donations have helped us divert fifty million pounds of items from the landfill!

Call Us Before Remodeling

If you’re planning a simple remodel or renovating an entire property, our volunteers can carefully deconstruct items such as cabinets, countertops, cupboards, vanities and more to salvage usable portions of rooms and buildings. Anything reclaimed is then made available for purchase in our ReStore locations.

Benefits of deconstruction:

  • Save money – reduced disposal and hauling fees, and a tax deduction for the donation.
  • Help our community – repurposed building materials raise money to offer safe, decent affordable housing options for hardworking families in need in the Fox Valley.
  • Preserve our environment – reuse materials instead of disposing of them in landfills.

To discuss a deconstruction opportunity, please call Kathy Lenz at (920) 213-6331.

Military & Veterans Discount

We honor those who serve by offering our Active Duty Military and Veterans a 10% discount every Monday on in-store merchandise. Must show valid Military or Veteran ID to receive discount.
