Business is booming at the Habitat 53° ReStore!

It's come a long way since last year.

The Habitat 53° Chapter in Flin Flon first opened the doors to their very own ReStore in the fall of 2012. Opened just seven Saturdays last year, Kathy McCormick, the manager of the Habitat 53° ReStore, can remember three days where not a single sale was made. These days, however, McCormick and her volunteers can't keep up with all the customers walking through the doors in search of a great deal.

Business is booming at the Habitat 53° ReStore!

Located in a narrow brown storage building at the back of the old armoury property in Flin Flon, Manitoba, the Habitat 53° ReStore re-opened for the 2013 season in May and will run every Saturday from 10am - 3pm until September 28th (with no heating in the facility, they are forced to close their doors in the winter months). Kathy McCormick was hoping to see at least $2,000 in profit this season, but she has been pleasantly surprised to find that they are closing in on five times that goal in sales with seven weeks to go!

Much like the ReStore in Winnipeg, the Habitat 53° ReStore collects and sells construction and household items to support a Habitat build. Habitat 53° is set to start building their first Habitat home this year.

From nails to sinks, to doors, toilets, or tiles, the ReStore might have just what you’re looking for! If not, leave your ‘wish list’ with Kathy and she will give you a call when they do!
