EASTON, Md.– The Habitat for Humanity Choptank ReStore in Easton is gearing up for its fourth anniversary celebration.
The store will host an open house on Saturday, November 8 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Organizers say shoppers and donors can expect food, special discounts and a variety of merchandise available.
During the event, store volunteers and staff will reveal the total proceeds collected to date to support Habitat's affordable home ownership program. Organizers say a special addition to this year's event will be an announcement about the store's upcoming move to a new, larger location.
“We always look forward to our anniversary celebration but the 2014 event will be extra special as we prepare to move,” says ReStore manager Chris Smith. “The community has been wonderful to us donating quality used and even new home improvement items and furniture.”
The ReStore truck makes 20 pick-ups per week on average, collecting goods every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday all over the Mid-Shore. Representatives from the store say hundreds of items are also brought to the ReStore by donors every month.
“We work with a lot of commercial donors as well as receive donations from the general public,” Walls says. “Our single biggest department in terms of sales is furniture, which comes almost entirely from individual donors.”
Organizers say special promotions will be posted around the store starting Nov. 8 to help staff and volunteers get ready for the move later this year.
