Habitat for Humanity Restore grand opening
September 5, 2012
Habitat for Humanity will celebrate the new location of the Restore in Silverthorne with a grand opening celebration Friday and Saturday with discounts on furniture.Restore moved from its location in Breckenridge to 131 Blue River Pkwy. in S’thorne next to Conoco Aug. 16. Since then, staff has been building its inventory with donations.Restore, which primarily sells furniture, has an abundant inventory of couches, tables, entertainment centers and more.”We have been so blessed to have such generous people in the county,” said Cathy McGlothin, general manager of Restore. “There are so many second-home owners here that remodel their homes and donate regularly. We’ve literally had some people donate entire dining and living room sets.”Restore’s grand opening will feature deals that change every hour. Restore staff will announce a discount on a featured item like chairs, sofas, artwork, etc. between 10-50 percent.Food and beverages will also accompany the grand opening.The new space nearly doubles the square footage of its previous location at 4,000 square feet, compared to the 2,000-square-foot building in Breck.The Habitat for Humanity Restore will serve as the primary source of funding for the organization’s home-build projects.”It is our goal to begin a home-build project next summer,” spokesman David Pessel said. “Of course there are a lot of factors that go into raising money – we need to identify the land we are going to build on, go through the permitting process and then raise the funds through the Restore and other projects to build a house.”
