New merchandise mixed among used items

Hardin County Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore is packing up and moving into a new facility.

The ReStore is moving from its cramped quarters off Westport Road in Elizabethtown to a more spacious building at 6746 S. Wilson Road – the former home of Roy’s Furniture. The new facility will open its doors Thursday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. beginning Thursday, spokeswoman Trisha Caudill said.

The ReStore dabbles in “recycling.” Items are collected from donors and resold at a reasonable price.

“It’s just another fundraising avenue,” Caudill said.

The store takes materials pertinent to the home, from construction materials to appliances to furniture. Caudill said items like clothing will not be accepted.

Much of the ReStore’s inventory is used and donated, but new merchandise is also on display. Clayton Homes in Hodgenville donated its remaining inventory upon the closure of its store, Caudill said, so potential buyers can peruse new acquisitions, such as cabinets, during a visit.

All of the items donated must be in serviceable condition, Caudill added.

If someone wants to donate but cannot make the drive, a pickup can be arranged at a $10 fee, too, she said.

Items accepted include appliances in working condition, furniture, building materials and office equipment.
