The Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity ReStores are a network of four home improvement thrift stores that sell donated new and gently used merchandise at a significant discount to the general public. All proceeds benefit Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity as it builds homes, communities and hope for families in need of affordable homeownership.
Our affiliate has been operating ReStores in the local area since 2005 when our first ReStore on E 22nd St. was opened, followed by our Greenfield ReStore in 2014, the Avon ReStore in 2015, our merger with the Fishers ReStore in 2019, and our new flagship store on West Washington St., which we opened in 2020.
In addition to generating funds for Habitat’s homebuilding program, the ReStores also provide steeply discounted and good quality furniture, building materials, and appliances (among other things) to budget-minded shoppers in the local community while saving valuable items from the landfill. In this “ReStore circle of life,” we are both supporting and supported by the local communities where our stores are located. Additionally, the ReStores employ dozens of people in various roles throughout our four stores, providing jobs in the communities where the ReStores operate.
By supporting us through your tax-deductible donation or shopping in a ReStore, you are providing strength, stability and independence for first-time homeowners & helping Habitat provide a community resource that keeps items of value out of the landfill.
