MEMPHIS, Tenn. (Nov. 15, 2017) – Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis today announced the Memphis ReStore will temporarily close to shoppers Nov. 22 through Jan. 12 to refresh the store and conduct staff and volunteer training. The store will reopen to shoppers on Saturday, Jan. 13.
“This is all about improving the ReStore so we can raise more money to serve more families through our affordable mortgage and Aging in Place programs,” said Dwayne Spencer, president and CEO at Memphis Habitat. “The ReStore plays an integral role in the sustainability of our organization, and it’s a big part of the strategic plan we’ll launch in 2018. Next year is also our 35th anniversary, so we wanted to refresh and reopen the store as a part of our yearlong celebration.”
Ahead of the temporary closure, the ReStore will hold a special pre-holiday sale Nov. 17-21. Everything in the ReStore – from home goods to building supplies, gently used furniture, appliances and more – will be 35% off to help make room to spruce up the store and make way for additional donated inventory received over the holidays.
