Another Great Reason to Visit a Thrift Store (As If We Need One)!

Savvy shoppers already know the many benefits of thrifting. A thrift store is a great place to find reasonably priced home furnishings, decor, and home improvement products. And, when it’s time to re-do your space, donating your gently used items to a thrift store is the perfect way to give your old things a new life. 

Adding to the many advantages thrift shops offer is knowing that shopping at and donating to thrift stores also helps save the environment. That’s a lot of great reasons to shop at thrift stores and donate to them. 

A Unique Thrift Store 

Of course, we’re not talking about just any thrift store; we’re talking about the Re-Store Warehouse in Fayetteville. Unlike some thrift shops, the Re-Store Warehouse is a nonprofit organization. Its mission is to donate 100 percent of all net profits from its affordable new and gently used products to charities that support people in need in Cumberland County while also promoting the sustainability of our environment. 

In the last 20 years, the Re-Store Warehouse has donated more than $1 million to charities helping children and families in the Fayetteville area. 

So, that dining room set you purchase to share meals with your family and friends might make it possible to help feed our hungry neighbors. The home improvement supplies you buy to give a room a fresh coat of paint or replace your kitchen cabinets ensure those in need have shelter. Any donations you share when renovating your home enable us to protect our children.

There’s No Place Like Home

Unlike other thrift stores, our inventory doesn’t include clothing, jewelry, or collectible items like video games. Instead, the focus is exclusively on home goods. So, no matter where you call home—an apartment, a camper, a house, or a refurbished school bus—Re-Store Warehouse has what you need.

We understand that a home is more than physical space. A home is a safe haven, a place of comfort and security. Providing safe and secure homes for children in foster care is the driving force of KidsPeace of Fayetteville, one of the nonprofit partners the Re-Store Warehouse is proud to support.

As of 2019, more than 11,000 children were in foster care in North Carolina. Organizations like KidsPeace work diligently to keep them safe and secure in loving homes.

Every time you visit Re-Store Warehouse to shop or make a donation, you’re not only 

giving a room in your home a new life, but you’re also giving a child and family a chance at a new life. Each time you restore a piece of furniture purchased at our store, you’re restoring life for a child in need. 

How to Shop at Re-Store Warehouse

All you need to shop at Re-Store Warehouse is an open mind and imagination. Take your time strolling through our inventory of new and used furniture, home decor, and building supplies to find all kinds of home improvement materials. You might even stumble on a one-of-a-kind, priceless treasure!
