Habitat for Humanity ReStore in the Colony Square Shopping Center recently launched an online store so customers can shop safely during the coronavirus pandemic.
Customers can schedule a pick-up time for their order. Shipping is not offered.
The store is at 1303 Jamestown Road.
Inventory will be updated weekly while Habitat ReStore remains closed to the public, according to a news release.
Habitat ReStore has a list of frequently asked questions about their online store on their website.
The store sells a variety of items such as new or gently-used furniture, appliances, housewares and building materials.
The profits from the Habitat ReStore funds the Habitat for Humanity homebuyer program that builds and renovates homes for sale to local families with low and moderate incomes.
At this time, donations to Habitat ReStore are not being accepted, according to the news release.
“As the most successful ReStore in Virginia, we are excited to expand our offerings with a new online store, so that we can continue to raise funds for the mission of Habitat for Humanity,” said Jonathan Martinez, the Williamsburg Habitat ReStore manager.
The Williamsburg Habitat ReStore has seen incredible growth over the past eight years and with the Newport News location (371 Chatham Drive), the pair of Habitat ReStores have net enough funds to build over 75 affordable homes locally.
Both locations are part of the Habitat for Humanity Peninsula & Greater Williamsburg, which serves Virginia families with low and moderate incomes in the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and Williamsburg, plus the counties of Charles City, James City, New Kent and York. Habitat PGW was founded in 1985.
