The Kemptville ReStore opened their doors on June 2, after being closed since March 17 due to Covid-19 restrictions. The staff and volunteers have been busy preparing the store to ensure that precautions are in place to protect the staff, volunteers and our customers.
Please note that during this time the store hours for shopping have changed, and will be Monday to Saturday from 10am to 3pm. All drop off donations are accepted by appointment only Monday to Saturday from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm .
On April 4, the Kemptville ReStore donated 25 boxes of 3M bio suits to be used at the Brockville Memorial Centre, where they have set up the COVID-19 test centre.
I was led to believe that the Restore was about accepting donations that would be forwarded to people in need.
T’aint so. From what I saw in their place, seems more like they’ll accept donations to re-sell at good prices, oviously not to to the people that need help. Just another commercial enterprise!
From their website: https://habitat.ca/en/restore
Habitat for Humanity ReStores are home and building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used building materials. Shopping at a Habitat ReStore is a socially conscious decision, as funds generated are used to fund local Habitat for Humanity homebuilding projects. It’s also an environmentally conscious decision, as much of what is sold is product that is new, gently used or customer returns that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
