Celebrate New Growth in West Bloomington With the Habitat ReStore

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore will celebrate their Grand Re-Opening on June 2 from 4 to 7pm. Located at 1402 W. Washington in Bloomington, the Habitat ReStore is a donation center and thrift store that is best known for affordable furniture, appliances, and home improvement materials. All proceeds from ReStore sales directly support Habitat for Humanity of McLean County’s mission to build decent homes alongside families and volunteers in the community.

    The ReStore broke ground on their “ReStore ReNewal” expansion project in March of 2017. Construction was spearheaded by Catalyst Construction, EA Architecture and Design, and Lewis Yockey & Brown, with noteworthy contributions from Habitat’s loyal “Retired Crew” volunteers. Choosing to remain at the same West Bloomington location they have operated from since 2009, the finished project boasts a 20,000 square foot facility.
    Improvements from this $1 million project include a larger parking lot, a donation drop-off drive-through, an extra register, and better visibility from the Constitution Trail. The Grand Re-Opening is an opportunity to welcome both long-time supporters and newcomers to the new space.
    The Grand Re-Opening event is free and open to the public, thanks to a generous sponsorship from the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Illinois Chapter. The event will have activities for all ages, including a unique IIDA Flipped Furniture Auction, live music, face painting, balloon animals, and local food trucks. Community partners, such as Upper Limits, Heartland Head Start, Mid Central Community Action, and the West Bloomington Revitalization Project will be represented.
    ReStore General Manager, Tyler Wiggs, explains, “The expanded ReStore offers more inventory at discounted prices and allows more people to donate items in a productive, environmentally conscious way. At the same time, a project of this scale shows other businesses the value of investing in the West Bloomington community and encourages further development in the neighborhood.” Besides serving more shoppers and donors, the projected growth in ReStore sales will provide additional funds to build Habitat homes with even more families.

    Habitat for Humanity of McLean County (HFHMC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, and a Christian housing ministry working to eliminate poverty housing worldwide. As a social service agency, homebuilder, and mortgage lender, HFHMC partners with volunteers and families on a non-discriminatory basis to build simple, decent, affordable houses and sell them at cost through a no-interest loan. HFHMC serves families who live in sub-standard housing and are unable to qualify for other home buying programs, yet have the stability of income and credit history to demonstrate the ability to repay their Habitat mortgage, and who are willing to complete sweat equity demonstrating their commitment to the program.
    The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a non-profit home improvement store and donation center that sells new and gently used furniture, appliances, cabinets, home accessories, building materials, and more at deeply discounted prices. Proceeds from the ReStore provide funding to Habitat for Humanity of McLean County in an effort to eliminate substandard housing in our community and around the world. The ReStore will have extended hours the day of the Grand Re-Opening event.

    The media is welcome and encouraged to attend this event!
