Habitat for Humanity opens new store


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Now you’ve got even more options to help out a great local cause. Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity opened its newest ReStore location Saturday off Market St. in the Ogden area.

The store has gently-used items; everything from building materials to beds. Proceeds from the store go toward buying materials for building homes for deserving families.

Cashier Emmett Byrd said the store is a special place, because customers aren’t the only ones doing the giving.

“So many people give here,” Byrd said. “They give of their time and they volunteer. Even the people that are getting homes, they have to volunteer and spend a certain amount of hours to earn their home. It’s just a great thing for the community when everybody gets together and gives. It actually feels more like a village.”

ReStore is open Monday through Saturday. You can buy or donate housewares and appliances or volunteer your time to work in the store, which is located at 7330 Market St. in Wilmington.
