LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 14, 2012) -- Habitat for Humanity of Pulaski County will hold the grand opening of its Little Rock ReStore location today, June 14.
The ReStore, located at 6700 S. University Ave. will offer a wide-selection of household goods, furniture, appliances and building materials.
In addition to the new Little Rock location, Habitat has another Pulaski County ReStore located in North Little Rock at 2657 Pike Avenue. The North Little Rock store opened in 2006.
The space now occupied by the Little Rock ReStore was the former home of Crain Chevrolet. Restore Manager Stephanie Rash said the space was perfect for the Little Rock ReStore because it was bright and spacious.
"We will take everything for a home except clothing and linens," Rash said. "We offer pick-ups inside your home for bigger pieces that someone can't fit inside their vehicle and of course, donations are accepted at the store."
A tax-receipt is issued for each donation received.
The store currently has a large supply of appliances, some priced as low as $75 and others that look as if they have never been used. Rash said that each appliance is tested before it is ever placed on the sales floor.
In addition to appliances, there are areas designated for furniture, including antiques, home decor, books, tools, building materials and gardening items.
Rash said that anyone remodeling their home, looking to replace doors or windows or, is looking for a better sofa than the one they currently own to consider shopping the ReStore.
"We carry good quality items that are reasonably priced," Rash said.
Thursday's grand opening kicks off at 11 a.m. and will feature hot dogs, live music and store specials. There will also be a booth where people can learn more about Habitat for Humanity and how to become a homeowner. Door prizes will be given away throughout the day.
All proceeds from both ReStore locations go to build houses for low income families in need in Pulaski County.
