Habitat for Humanity to open ReStore in Aurora
It’s a Habitat for Humanity ReStore opening Wednesday, March 9, at 4100 Fox Valley Center Drive, Aurora.
“We don’t exist just to have a retail store. There’s no reason for that,” said Jeff Barrett, executive director of Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity. “It’s a way of being a little more self-sustaining than having to be totally dependent on sponsorships and donations.”
The ReStore will raise funds for the nonprofit by selling used, donated goods including bathtubs, shelving, toilets, cabinets, lockers, windows, doors, tools and decorative home elements from a 28,000-square-foot retail location in an outlot at Westfield Fox Valley mall.
While its soft opening is scheduled for March 9, the store will have a grand opening, complete with TV giveaways and other specials, on Saturday, April 30, Barrett said.
