Retail with a Purpose

We have increased measures to ensure our employees, volunteers, and partners remain safe and healthy, and to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are locally managed, non-profit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, construction and building materials, and equipment to the public. Revenue from sales provides a major source of funding for our work in San Luis Obispo County for new construction, home preservation and neighborhood revitalization projects. What’s more, as items are donated and resold, we help divert useable materials from the landfill while providing lower-cost options for local homeowners to pursue home renovation projects of their own. Donations to our organization are tax deductible.

Donation Delivery & Pickup


We have partnered with ReSupply to provide an alternative donation pickup option for our donors. For a small fee to the donor, ReSupply offers a Priority Pickup service which includes retrieval, disassembly, and delivery of items to a HFHSLOCO ReStore.

Some donors may find this service more efficient or helpful than other donation options, however our donors are not required to use ReSupply to donate to our ReStores.

Donor Dropoff

Small donations are accepted during business hours on a walk-in basis at both of our ReStore locations, but feel free to coordinate with one of our store managers if you prefer. Before packing your donation, please review the list of acceptable and unacceptable donations.

For all donations of large items, or of large quantities of items, please coordinate with a ReStore manager in advance so we can be sure to accommodate the delivery.

Donation Pickup

On a limited basis, HFHSLOCO provides donation pickup services for our donors. Please contact your local ReStore directly to discuss pickup options.

Pickups are usually arranged for approximately two weeks from the time of scheduling. Items must be prepared for pickup, placed outside the home or in a garage where they are easily accessible and protected from adverse weather. When available, this service is free.
