When can I pick up my item?

Habitat ReStore offers in-store pick-up of any product ordered online from our six distribution locations. Items are tagged with their location.

You will receive an e-mail notification with pick-up instructions, including store location and hours after your order has been processed, Monday through Friday. Orders placed online are ready to be picked up from their distribution location after 24 hours and must be retrieved within 7 days.

Your items can be picked up from the store at which they are located. If you ordered items from multiple locations you will need to pick up each item separately, as we are unable to transfer items between stores.

All online orders will be delivered to the doorstep, or the garage. We ask that you maintain social distancing at all times.

Who do my donations and/or purchases support?

When you donate to or shop at one of our Habitat ReStores across the GTA, you’re helping to improve and strengthen families in your community — as well as the environment.

All ReStore proceeds directly support Habitat for Humanity GTA’s home building projects. Through our affordable homeownership program, Habitat GTA helps local working, lower-income families, who are living in unsafe, substandard housing, to build strength, stability and self-reliance.

Your ReStore donations and purchases also mean that your perfectly re-useable household items and materials are recycled and given a good home, rather than going to waste.
