ReStores are public retail outlets operated by Habitat, providing a wide variety of affordable new and used home furnishings, appliances, lighting, plumbing, hardware and building materials and supplies for sale to the general public. Proceeds generated assist in raising funds to help reach each affiliate's goals.

The Nanaimo ReStore opened in December 2001 and was the first ReStore in BC. The store is located next door to our affiliate office on Mostar Road.

Our ReStore even has its own Facebook page, where you can get the latest on new arrivals and sales events.

Material Donations

We rely on donated products that we sell, as well as building materials and fixtures in re-saleable, repairable and/or re-usable condition. Through this recycling process, Habitat's nearly 100 Canadian ReStores have helped to divert thousands of tonnes of building materials from the landfills annually.

Donation examples are listed below, or call the ReStore at 250-758-8743 ext. 1 beforehand to ensure any other home construction related products can be accepted.
