Not Your Average Thrift Store

Before running to the local hardware or furniture store, make Chippewa Valley Habitat ReStore your first stop to find unique household treasures and great deals. Why spend more when you don’t have to? ReStore is a retail store like none other, conveniently located on Clairemont Avenue in Eau Claire. Anyone can donate and purchase new and gently used building materials and home goods.

The profits from your purchases and donations directly support Chippewa Valley Habitat’s mission to help low-income families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. It’s a good deal for you, your community and the environment.

ReStore is continually receiving new and gently used donations, so every time you come back, our inventory is fresh and there’s another treasure to be found. ReStore often features affordable new and used items.

Call Us Before Remodeling

If you’re planning a simple remodel or renovating an entire property, our volunteers can carefully deconstruct items such as cabinets, countertops, cupboards, vanities and more to salvage usable portions of rooms and buildings. Anything reclaimed is then made available for purchase in our ReStore.

Benefits of deconstruction:

  • Save money – reduced disposal and hauling fees, and a tax deduction for the donation.
  • Help our community – repurposed building materials raise money to offer safe, decent affordable housing options for hardworking families in need in the Fox Valley.
  • Preserve our environment – reuse materials instead of disposing of them in landfills.

To discuss a deconstruction opportunity, please call Marlie Sabelko 715-895-8177

Donate Instead of Dispose

Donating to the Chippewa Valley Habitat ReStore is a sustainable, environmentally savvy way to pass along items you no longer need.

It prevents useful items from ending up in the landfill while going to another family who will give it a loving home. Your donations have helped us divert fifty million pounds of items from the landfill!
