ReStore opened in May 2011. The ReStore home improvement outlet is located at 2801 West Saint Germain Street in Saint Cloud.Who is the ReStore's competition?
Other thrift and second hand stores are not considered competition to the ReStore model. These retail operations sell much different product than those of ReStore. Items such as bedding and clothing are not accepted at the ReStore so that it does not have the potential to pose a threat to these other organizations. Big box and businesses that also sell building and home improvement materials are not considered competition. The ReStore is a resource for these entities. These businesses donate to the ReStore and reap the benefits of donating to the ReStore. What is Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity (CMHFH)?
