Habitat Re-store to get $50,000 boost from The Riley Foundation

The Habitat Re-store is now open Thursday through Saturday, but the store manager would like to see it become a six-day-a-week venture.
The store, at 2911 Eighth St., opened last weekend and will hold a grand opening ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday.
Store manager Mark Barrett said The Riley Foundation plans to present a $50,000 grant to the store during its grand opening. He said the money will be used to purchase materials for sale and for repairs to the building.
Opened by Lauderdale County Habitat for Humanity, the store recycles used building materials, appliances, doors, windows, cabinets, counter tops, tile, furniture, fixtures and more.
A nonprofit retail business, proceeds from sales help fund Habitat for Humanity programs to build affordable housing for families in need.
Barrett said Community Bank has been a big help to the store. The building, which was owned by the bank, was sold to Habitat at a 40 percent reduction of the price.
Barrett added that supporting the Habitat Re-store provides usable materials as well as money for building Habitat homes which, in turn, benefits the community.
He said that the quality materials are available for anyone at discount prices and he said the store accepts donations for resale.
For more information about the store, to donate items or to volunteer to work, call Habitat Re-store at 483-6364 or 483-6325.
