Interested in Volunteering?
Come volunteer at the ReStore and stay warm! The Aberdeen ReStore is looking for volunteers Tuesday, 10 AM to 3 PM and Wednesday-Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM. Volunteers can do 2 hour to 4 hour shifts. Volunteering is a great way to knock out school service hours, make new friends, and learn new skills.  Volunteers keep the sales floor clean, help our customers and assist in our donations drop off area.  We have opportunities for teenagers (16 years or older) to senior citizens.  Groups and families are also welcome.   If you are interested in volunteering please contact John Lanigan at jlanigan@habitatsusq.org or 443-567-7698 Ext 14.


Spotlight: Volunteer of the Month 
Our volunteers of the month for January are Theresa and Gerry! This dynamic duo has been volunteering with the ReStore since May 2016. Theresa and Gerry have been volunteering with the ReStore two Saturdays of every month. They are part of our core Saturday volunteer team. Saturday is one of our busiest days here at the ReStore. Theresa and Gerry have been a huge help assisting customers and donors alike. They are the glue that keeps our ReStore from falling into chaos on Saturdays. Thank you both, for your extraordinary service.  

Refresh, Renew, ReStore! Declutter for the New Year - 2018!
It's a new year - 2018.  A great way to start your new year is to donate any old or new items you no longer need to the Aberdeen ReStore.  Clear out your clutter and have a fresh start!  Donation hours are Tuesday -  9:00 AM-3:00 PM,  Wednesday - Friday,  10:00 AM-5:00 PM and  Saturday -  9:00 AM-3:00 PM.  For a complete guide of what items we can or cannot accept please check on our website and click the link on http://www.harfordcecil.habitatrestores.org/donate.

Insider Notes
...get the scoop on how our sales work plus more!
Monthly Color Tag Sales
We're running color tag sales every month, where items will be priced according to condition, uniqueness, quantity and from where it was received. Our items range from high-end corporate donors to residential, and everything is priced from $-$$$ and in-between. 

At the beginning of each month items will be marked down with the colored tags, depending on how long they've been at the ReStore. Pictured here (at right) are the tags you'll see in the store, and the markdowns they represent. Happy shopping!

Three-Day Holds
The vast majority of our furniture is extremely heavy, and due to insurance requirements, we unfortunately cannot load your vehicle. We'll be happy to bring your item(s) to the loading dock for you to load yourself.  Please note that we have a strict three-day hold. If you do not pick your item(s) up by the third day, they will be returned to the floor to be resold, and ONLY store credit will be issued for the amount of the item.  Sorry, NO REFUNDS. 

Perka Points
We offer a frequent purchase program called Perka. Download the app, and for every dollar you spend you earn 1 point. 100 points= $10 off (certain discounts cannot be combined to create a greater reward). Ask in the store for details.
