The Uptown ReStore – located at 3311 Oak Street between Uptown and Mayfair Mall will re-open on June 2nd, 2020 under the same modified hours and physical distancing rules as the Westshore ReStore which opened May 14th.

For keen shoppers anxious to get back to finding amazing deals on new and gently used furniture, appliances, building supplies and home accessories, Habitat for Humanity Victoria will start re-opening its ReStores on Thursday, May 14th, 2020. The re-opening will take place in two phases, starting with its Westshore location as follows:
ReStore Westshore – located at 849 Orono Avenue in Langford – will be opening the doors to shoppers and accepting donations with modified hours Tuesday through Saturday 12 noon to 5:00 pm. “The modified hours are designed to allow our staff time to process donations and get online purchases ready to be picked up, clean the store and re-stock,” advised Jim Walker, Director of Retail Operations. “Any new donations we receive will go through a quarantine process followed by cleaning before they are made available for sale.”
The Uptown ReStore – located at 3311 Oak Street – will open later in the month once the new protocols have been put in place. “Customers will notice some changes as we take the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe; their patience and kindness is very much appreciated as we work to maintain appropriate physical distancing,” added Jim.
The Tillicum ReStore – located at 50 Burnside Road West – will not be reopening. “This was an incredibly difficult decision for our charity, but amid the uncertainty of the impacts of the current health crisis, we opted to let our lease end,” said Yolanda Meijer, CEO. “We are extremely grateful to all of our staff, volunteers, donors and shoppers in the Gorge Tillicum area who welcomed us into their community and we hope to see them at our other two locations.”
As Habitat for Humanity Victoria continues the work of supporting families, the COVID-19 crisis clearly demonstrates the importance of having a safe and decent place to live. The call to stay home to protect those most vulnerable in our society has meant our ReStores have been closed since March and impacted the fundraising plans for our current builds.
Today is Giving Tuesday Now. A day of global giving and unity when all Canadians are invited to join charitable organizations in demonstrating the power of generosity.
Please join us and donate to Habitat for Humanity Victoria so we can continue to support families in our community in the weeks and months ahead.
