Farmville Habitat moves to new location

Piedmont Habitat for Humanity, formerly Farmville Area Habitat for Humanity, is moving its ReStore to a new location. The local ReStore opened in Farmville in 2009 as a home improvement center where gently used furniture, household goods, appliances, building materials and more are donated and resold to the public, at substantial savings for the customer. Donors are given a receipt for their items, which can then be used for tax-deduction purposes. The proceeds made by the ReStore benefit the mission of Habitat for Humanity to serve local individuals and families who are in need of safe, decent affordable housing. Many individuals and local groups also volunteer at the ReStore as a way to support Habitat and contribute to the local community.

On Friday, Aug. 16, at 10 a.m., the ReStore will reopen in its new, larger location at 1506 South Main Street, next to the Farmville Food Lion. On Saturday, Aug. 24, the Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce will host a Grand ReOpening Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Piedmont Habitat representative Sam Rabon notes, “This new location will allow for even more inventory, which means more great deals and more money raised to help us realize our vision of a community where everyone has a decent place to live.” ReStore manager Sara Beachum adds, “Our customers are really excited about this move. Everyone is ready to see the new store.”
