Habitat for Humanity opens ReStore
Goodyear has a new shopping destination for great home improvement deals: ReStore, Habitat for Humanity’s 19,000-square-foot hub for new and almost-new discounted appliances, building materials, furniture, and other items sold at well below the retail price.

Not only do customers get a great deal, their purchases also contribute to the efforts of Habitat for Humanity, a nationwide organization that builds and renovates homes for low-income families.
Corporate stores, contractors and individuals have donated much of the new and gently used merchandise. According to folks at Habitat for Humanity, all of the ReStores keep about 200,000 pounds a month out of landfills.
The Goodyear ReStore is located at 13735 W. Auto Drive, near the northwest corner of 137th Avenue and Van Buren Street. It’s the fourth location in metro Phoenix opened by the nonprofit organization, which has built or renovated about 800 homes throughout the Valley.
For the past year, the three other stores have been collecting inventory to stock the Goodyear location for its “quiet” grand opening on June 23, but will eventually rely on Southwest Valley businesses and residents to donate the merchandise. A formal grand opening is planned for September. For more information about Habitat for Humanity, visit habitat.org.
