Habitat for Humanity Hawai’i Island will celebrate the grand reopening of its new Hilo ReStore on Saturday, April 21, 2018, at its new location at 863 Iolani St.

The ReStore moved to a new and bigger building in February of this year.

The Grand Reopening Celebration will feature a blessing and hula performance from a local hālau, a 20% off storewide sale and lunch cooked by the Hilo Kiwanis Club for purchase.

Customers can also participate in DIY clinics for adults and keiki, and enter a raffles to win prizes from local businesses.

The blessing will take place at 8:30 a.m. The store is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with raffle drawings
every half an hour.

Customers are also encouraged to bring donations of new or gently-used household items, furniture, appliances, or building materials to help “stuff-a- truck.”

All items are sold back to the community at a fraction of retail price, and donors are able to get a tax-receipt for their donation.

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is the retail arm of the organization, helping to raise much-needed money to fund the building of new homes, and critical repairs on existing homes, for local families.

It also acts as a recycling facility, keeping approximately 600 tons of material from our Hawai’i Island landfills each year.

Residents can donate their new and gently used items to the ReStore to receive a tax deduction.

This is Habitat for Humanity’s third ReStore on the island, with two other locations in Kona and Waimea.
