Everyone has in some form or another heard of Habitat for Humanity but
few in Quebec have heard of the ReStore. As their website states, “The
Habitat for Humanity Montreal ReStore sells quality, new and gently
used furniture, appliances, home décor items, building and renovation
materials to the public at greatly reduced prices.” All proceeds help
cover the administrative costs including the construction of affordable
homes for families in need in Quebec.
Check out this recent CTV News Montreal spotlight on Habitat for Humanity Montreal.
Paul Karwatsky interviews Isabel Singh (President & CEO for Habitat
for Humanity Montreal) and Kathy Raymond (Director of ReStores) about
the organization and ReStores.
Last week, the Habitat Montreal ReStore re-launched their hardware trift
store concept. Anyone looking to renovate their home or investment
property should stop by the store. Under Kathy’s leadership, I am really
impressed with the changes, growth and new ideas.
