A Message from the Director of ReStore Operations – Wendy Malik
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore (Thrift Store) first opened in Inverness in 2003. In 2011, we opened a second location in Crystal River. Both stores have been extremely successful due to the overwhelming support of the generous people of Citrus County. With your help, we can continue to grow and continue to support Habitat’s homeownership mission by creating affordable housing for Citrus County families. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live.
If you have never been to one of our Habitat ReStores (Thrift Stores), please stop in and see what we’re all about. The ReStores are public retail outlets that sell a wide variety items from new to gently used appliances, furniture, housewares and building supplies - all at affordable prices. All proceeds from the sale of our donated items are used to build homes, our community and hope in Citrus County.
The ReStores’ inventory is constantly changing based upon the donations we receive. You never know what you’ll find at the ReStore! Our ReStores also help keep our community green by re-purposing and re-using items instead of adding them to our local landfill. We recycle metal, clothing and non-sellable items.
Your donations make a difference!
Help a family build a home without even picking up a hammer! The ReStores rely on volunteers to help with customer service, sorting inventory, cleaning merchandise and picking up donations. Whether it’s an entire day or a few hours, one person or a large group, the ReStores are a better place when volunteers are helping us support our affordable housing efforts. When you play a part, it helps make us whole.
Move it, price it, sell it! The Habitat ReStores are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to assist with receiving product donations, merchandising and providing friendly customer service. No previous experience is required, just a willingness to work and be a part of Habitat's mission! Come out, have fun and meet new people!
Volunteers make a difference!
The ReStores depend on the generosity of the people of Citrus County. We seek donations of new or gently used items from individuals, retailers, businesses, groups, manufacturers, contractors and remodelers. Tax-deductible donations can be dropped off at either ReStore location during regular working hours or simply call us at (352) 564–2300 to schedule your free donation pickup.
Commercial Donors are businesses and organizations that support the Habitat for Humanity ReStores through donations and services that help fulfill our needs. If you are a company and would like to donate to the ReStore, or would like to learn more about the donor program, please contact us at: (352) 564–2300.
It is easy for anyone to get involved at the ReStore! You can help your community and Habitat for Humanity of Citrus County by simply shopping at the ReStore, donating items you no longer need or volunteering your free time!
No matter how you choose to support us, it will help us continue to achieve our goal.
