Greater Rochester Habitat for Humanity has relocated its Culver Road ReStore to BayTowne Plaza in Penfield.

Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers. The stores sell new and gently used furniture, appliances and building materials. Other ReStores are in Henrietta and Canandaigua.

The new 13,500-square-foot BayTowne location provides about double space, which means more inventory, which in turns means greater potential for funding to help families attain quality housing.

“The grand opening of this new, larger ReStore celebrates so much more than just a relocation of our Culver Road space,” Matthew Flanigan, president and CEO of Greater Rochester Habitat for Humanity, said in a news release. “Increasing the funding capacity means that we can serve more families and build more homes per year. This need is critical, especially in our current housing market.”

Money spent on goods at ReStores is used to expand affordable homeownership opportunities for local families.

Greater Rochester Habitat for Humanity is a non-denominational Christian housing ministry serving Monroe, Ontario and Wayne counties. The organization partners with families and individuals to secure an affordable mortgage after they have worked alongside volunteers to build or improve a home.
