The ReStore is Habitat Northumberland's non-profit home improvement centre. Our shelves are stocked with new and gently-used home improvement supplies and decor items donated to us by homeowners and businesses. Everything is available at discounted rates with NO HST.
Because we constantly receive new inventory, every trip to the ReStore offers a unique opportunity to discover a fantastic deal.
The ReStore ensures that all of our administrative costs are covered, and further profit goes directly into our homebuilding program. This means that 100% of your monetary donations go directly towards homebuilding in Northumberland County.

The ReStore at Habitat for Humanity Northumberland has expanded its profile as a Social Enterprise!!
The ReStore provides household and home renovation supplies for sale to residents in Northumberland, the proceeds of which go towards building more affordable houses in Northumberland County.
To expand the reach of the ReStore and its value to the community, Habitat for Humanity Northumberland has partnered with the County of Northumberland and the Community Training and Development Centre.
The New Program:
The Community Training and Development Centre works collaboratively with the County of Northumberland Department of Social Services in developing and providing a new “GPS” program. This program helps clients identify their interests and career/job goals then moves them strategically in a step by step progression to job preparedness.
The Habitat Connection:
Some Ontario Works clients without recent work history or without the confidence to try a work experience are invited to try a placement with Habitat and the ReStore.
Habitat offers the client opportunities to work on re-purposing household objects such as furniture, windows, doors, kitchen and bathroom fixtures and lights etc. These supervised activities help the client to build new skills and new working relationships while contributing to their community. As the client’s skill level improves, Habitat may also offer them extended experiences in customer service, sales, house construction and salvage.
This innovative program allows clients to build their confidence while building job skills and social capital. They feel supported by OW staff and Habitat staff during this period, and they feel connected to their community as they contribute to new affordable housing.
Other Community organizations involved in the GPS program include:
