Habitat for Humanity store to open soon on Eastside
July 12, 2011
Habitat for Humanity of East King County plans to open a 10,000-square-foot Habitat Store by late summer.
Profits from the store support Habitat’s mission to build affordable housing. The nonprofit organization is in the midst of construction efforts in the Issaquah Highlands and Renton.
In the meantime, the Bellevue store is accepting donations for resale. Call 351-1186 or go to http://habitatekc.org/store to learn about donation options.
“We’ve been planning this store for a year and feel confident about moving forward after the University of Washington’s Leadership MBA Program completed a comprehensive market study last winter,” Tom Granger, executive director of the local Habitat affiliate, said in a news release.
Habitat homes use environmentally friendly materials and follow “green” practices in design and construction.
