As part of our recent territory expansion to serve a geography including more than 85 percent of Los Angeles County, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) has opened our third ReStore location. Our home improvement thrift stores and donation centers sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. All proceeds from the ReStores are used toward furthering Habitat LA’s mission to build homes, communities and hope throughout Los Angeles.

Since 2004, Habitat LA ReStores have diverted more than 11 million pounds of materials from local landfills. Our newest ReStore is located at 1071 South La Brea Ave, in the heart of Los Angeles’ Mid-Wilshire neighborhood. A grand opening celebration was held during Earth Day weekend (April 20 – 22), which included a ribbon cutting, live DJ, discounted prices, giveaways, raffle prizes, and informative DIY upcycle demonstrations.

“We are so pleased to have opened this new Habitat for Humanity ReStore location in the heart of Los Angeles. Our sustainable model encourages upcycling and diverts reusable materials from local landfills,” said Erin Rank, President and CEO, Habitat LA. “The ReStores are also a social enterprise that help fund Habitat’s mission to build more affordable homes. By donating and shopping at our three LA ReStores, the community is helping to combat the affordable-housing crisis, and break the cycles of poverty and poor living conditions in Los Angeles County.”

We invite the community to shop for home goods and building materials, while doing good for others. Shoppers will find one-of-a-kind treasures, such as items from movie sets and vintage finds, as well as everyday items such as paint, rugs and tile, all at reduced prices. The ReStore motto “donate it, don’t dump it” is made easy with 12 trucks picking up new and gently used household items daily.
