The Resale Store opened its doors in 2001 and offers clothing, furniture, home décor, building supplies and more at great prices. The clothing department also offers a fitting room to try on garments you are interested in. The building supplies department has hardware, plumbing and electrical supplies as well as counters, sinks and so much more.

Staff and volunteers are willing to pick up any furniture and appliances being donated to Habitat for Humanity. Simply call the store at (828)524-5273 to donate and request a pickup.

Proceeds from sales at the store go to building and repairing homes here in Macon County. “We are always looking for volunteers for both the store and construction,” says Rick Westerman, executive director for Macon County’s Habitat for Humanity. “In addition to the work we take on here at Habitat, we also work with a lot of other non-profits in Macon County. Recently we helped insulate the women’s shelter at REACH, remove damaged flooring at the Pregnancy Care Center, as well as work on the men’s shelter at REACH. Anyone interested in volunteering can give Pete a call at (828)369-3716, ex. 103.”
