We're Moving!

Why is The ReStore moving?

If you've been in the ReStore, you've seen the cluttered aisles and limited space. We've outgrown our current location and then some.

One of the ReStore's goals has been to ensure that every dollar you donate to Lakes Area Habitat goes directly towards our home builds.

As we expand the number of families we serve, and start new projects like the Cass Lake Initiative, that means we need to ask more of the ReStore from a financial perspective.

Moving means growth. It means serving more families. It means a safer, more shopper-friendly, and donation-friendly experience

Our Move is in Progress!

We are officially out of the Wright Street location and are underway with construction in the new location, 415 8th Avenue NE in Brainerd.

We're hard at work to create a better ReStore shopping experience and while our moving journey continues, here are a few ways you can continue to support us:
🌟Save your ReStore donations for our grand re-opening! *Please refrain from tossing them into the trash or landfill!* We want your gently loved items that will help generate funds to help more families!
🌟Contribute to our capital campaign!
🌟Apply to work or volunteer in our ReStore! Once we re-open, we're going to need more help than ever before in our ReStore. If you love to shop here, perhaps working here would also be a good fit. Contact us to apply today!
🌟Visit us at our Grand Re-Opening! Although we're not sure when we will be ready, we're working hard to make our space incredible, and we want to share it with you! Keep your eyes and ears open for updates!
And, as always, we appreciate your patience and continued support through our moving journey!


Why move?

  • We need more space for donations, products, and shopping
  • We'd like to be more accessible and visible in the community we serve

Will the hours and days open change?

  • Yes, we will be open more days and have expanded hours

Will the move hurt LAHFH financially?

  • No. Selling the existing building along with a capital campaign, growth in pickups, and donations will ensure financial stability and success.

Will you still carry the same products?

  • Yes and more! The new Amazon paint line is just the start of expanded products we will carry.

Will the building be more accessible?

  • Yes. There will be a bigger (and safer!) parking lot, wider aisles and walking spaces inside, less congested donation and pick up spaces. It'll be safer and more accessible to all.
