Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County’s Riviera Beach ReStore has officially reopened after a devastating fire destroyed everything except the shell of the building in May 2019.

A little over two years later, the Riviera Beach ReStore, located at 6831 N. Military Trail, recently celebrated its re-opening celebration.

“We are excited to welcome back our supporters and shoppers to the renovated ReStore that features great merchandise and great prices… all for a great cause,” said Peter Gates, chief operating officer of HFHPBC.

The ReStore sells new and gently used items that are donated to HBFHPC. Retail outlets are a vital financial resource for Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. ReStores exist to support the nonprofit’s mission of providing decent, affordable housing to low-income families. Proceeds generated from ReStore sales help build new houses and provide urgent, critical repairs to older, owner-occupied homes.

“We are thrilled that our Riviera Beach ReStore is reopened,” said Bernie Godek, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County. “We encourage the community to stop by to visit us and see all of the amazing items that are for sale — and what’s better is knowing that every purchase is helping us continue the important work and mission of Habitat.”

Community members can donate and/or shop at Habitat for Humanity of Palm Beach County’s Riviera Beach ReStore at 6831 N. Military Trail), the Greenacres location at the northwest corner of Military Trail and Lake Worth Road, and the Jupiter Thrift Store at 1635 N. Old Dixie Highway.
