What is a ReStore?
Answer: The ReStore is good stuff at good prices for a good cause!
ReStore Alamance is more than a place to find amazing deals on new and gently used furniture, appliances, home décor and building materials. When you shop or donate at the ReStore you are helping Habitat build a community where everyone has a decent place to live. You are also keeping useable items out of the landfill!
Back in the 1990s, ReStore Alamance opened as a fund-raising arm of Habitat Alamance. Since that time proceeds from ReStore sales have helped build over 170 homes in this county, and we’re still selling new and gently used furniture, appliances, home décor, home improvement and building materials at a fraction of the retail price.
Whether you are furnishing your home or a college dorm room, doing DIY repairs as a landlord or homeowner, you are making a difference! Through your purchases, generous donations of items and volunteering, together we are building a community where everyone has a decent place to live.
Fair warning, upon entering ReStore Alamance you may experience an overwhelming desire to treasure hunt! You never know what you may come across when shopping here. It may be that glass doorknob—you thought were diamonds growing up, that missing gravy boat that completes your Auntie Bess’ china or that bowling ball you need for your yard art.
We have had all those and more! In fact, it has been said we have almost everything to build a house and furnish it too! DIY fans will love our selection of kitchen cabinetry, vanities and plumbing fixtures, wood and tile flooring, windows, doors and even small tools!
NOTE: Please bring someone to help you load larger and/or heavier items into your car. We have carts, dollies, and hand trucks available for you to use while shopping and loading items purchased. We have limited staffing and cannot guarantee we will have adequate staffing/volunteers to load large, heavy purchases.
Pictures of a few items in our inventory are posted weekly on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/HabitatReStoreAlamance. The best way to check current availability or the price of certain items is to visit our ReStore at 1176 N. Church St in Burlington NC. But don’t delay… we get new items in every day and our inventory moves quickly!
If you are unable to visit, we invite you to contact the store with your questions at 336-222-8292. Don’t forget. Our sales are first come first served! Hours are M-F 10-5pm and Sat 9-4pm.
Donations to the ReStore help build houses too!! When you donate your-gently used items to ReStore Alamance, the resale of your generous donations enables us to fund the construction of new Habitat houses right here in Alamance County. As a ReStore donor, you are changing lives by making affordable homeownership a reality for a family in your own community!
Not only are you making a difference locally, but you’re also making a difference globally by preventing household items with plenty of life left from needlessly going to waste in a landfill!
Some restrictions/exceptions may apply for donations to ReStore Alamance. All items must be in good, sellable and working condition. The ReStore reserves the right to refuse any item that is unsafe, broken, unclean or unsellable. We reserve the right to put limits on normally accepted/donated items. If you have a question about a possible donation, please contact us at 336-222-8292.
Ways to Donate
Just have a few items to donate? We have a donation drop-off area on the side of our ReStore with staff and volunteers available to assist you in unloading your items between 11am-3:30pm. In addition to furniture, appliances, home decor and home improvement items, we also accept DVDs and vinyl records.

Volunteers are crucial to the success of Habitat and there are unique opportunities to serve at the ReStore. From helping unload trucks, to organizing inventory, to setting up floor displays, you can put your individual talents to work. We have had handy people test and even repair small appliances before we sell them, and we have had people with decorating talents help us create attractive displays and even offer DIY makeover classes!
Want to serve with your friends? Bring your volunteer group out to the ReStore! Volunteer groups typically help unload donated household items, organize and clean donations, place items on the sales floor, maintain the cleanliness & organization of the store, and assist customers with carry-outs after purchase. Group sizes range from 3-5 volunteers.
Call the ReStore to schedule a date to serve as an individual or group: 336-222-8292.
