Habitat for Humanity ReStore to offer free pickups and new hours

CHAMPAIGN, IL June 23, 2017 —


Habitat for Humanity of Champaign County ReStore will be changing its store hours in July to offer a higher level of customer service to its local shoppers and donors.  Beginning Wednesday, July 5th, the Restore will be open for customer shopping, donation drop-offs & pickups on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10 – 6 pm and Saturdays from 10 – 4 pm. The ReStore will be closed on Sundays, Mondays, and open to receive donations on Tuesdays from 10-6.  “We are receiving more donations than ever before, and closing the store on Mondays and Tuesdays will give us more time to process donations and provide a better overall shopping experience,” said ReStore Director, Adam Morrisette.  A full staff will still be available on Tuesdays to accept and process community donations at the back door, but the store will not be open for shopping.  Tuesdays, staff and volunteers will be cleaning, organizing, and preparing the store to feature new donations.

The ReStore will also begin FREE pre-scheduled donation pickups; available Tuesday through Saturday by calling the ReStore at 217-359-0507.  “We want to make it easy for the community to donate to Habitat, and want to provide the best possible customer service to our shoppers.  These changes will make it easy to donate and allow our staff opportunities to prepare the ReStore for a great customer shopping experience.” said Morrisette.

Top Drawer, Habitat’s boutique store, will be closing on June 30th.  Items previously featured in Top Drawer will still be available for purchase in the ReStore.

All donations to, and proceeds from the Habitat ReStore are used to support Habitat home building projects in Champaign County.  For more information on the new store hours go to
