• Flooring Refurbishment in the Lima ReStore

    began on Saturday, February 17, 2018. On that day 92 volunteers, plus about 25 staff moved all the ReStore showroom inventory into storage for a week. 325 total volunteer hours were generously offered. Semi-trailers and storage pods were filled. Immediately after, Elite Concrete Creations began repairing the showroom floor and laying down a new surface, which will offer a safer environment for our shopping and a needed facelift for the look of the ReStore. Then on February 24, 71 more volunteers, plus numerous staff members moved all the inventory back into place. In total we had 167 volunteers give 718 hours to the project. This was a major undertaking for the Habitat and ReStore staff. We are appreciative to the many sponsors and volunteers who helped us make this possible. On Tuesday, Feb. 27, the ReStore re-opened its doors at 10:00am. Then on Saturday, March 30, the official unveiling of the new floor culminated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
