Got plans for a home renovation? Looking for furniture? Need hurricane shutters to get storm-ready by June 1?
Then you’ll flip for the bonanza of bargains at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
The nonprofit home-improvement thrift stores, with six South Florida locations, are a do-it-yourselfer’s dream come true.
The retail outlets and donation centers accept and sell new and slightly used items at 30 percent to 70 percent off retail, including home goods, furniture, decorative items, doors, windows, hurricane shutters, tools, plumbing and electrical supplies, lumber and building materials.You’ll get fabulous deals, plus purchases help make build homes for South Florida families in need.
It’s a charity I support, and you should too.
“ReStores are special,” says Nancy Daly, chairwoman of Habitat for Humanity of Broward. “They help put roofs over people’s heads.”
Daly oversees the ReStore at 505 W. Broward Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. The building bears her name.
