What is a Habitat ReStore?
The ReStores are independently owned reuse stores operated by local Habitat for Humanity organizations. It is a home improvement store, retail outlet as well as a donation center. ReStores accept commercial and private donations and purchase brand-new items, meaning inventory changes daily. You can expect to find diverse, high-quality merchandise to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Shopping at the ReStores is a great deal for you and diverts reusable household items and building materials from the landfills.
All proceeds, after cost, help Habitat Omaha partner with local families to build, rehabilitate and repair safe and affordable homes in our community — a good deal for you, your community and the environment.
Together, we can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future while creating stronger neighborhoods.
Omaha’s first Habitat ReStore opened its doors in 2000 at 1003 S. 24 St., just south of Leavenworth Street. In August 2012, Omaha’s second Habitat ReStore opened in west Omaha at 10910 Emmet St. At the Omaha ReStores you will not only find donated items but also purchased, brand-new items as well as items curated, made and/or refurbished by our Market Vendors.

Omaha’s Habitat ReStore outlets have saved a substantial number of usable items from local landfills. In 2022, our ReStores diverted approximately 541,344 items from our Nebraska landfill! Not to mention, all proceeds, after cost go directly toward our mission and programs.
