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.”
