The Fremont HomeStore opened it's doors in our first location, a garage, in January 2012. We quickly outgrew our first location and moved into a larger warehouse, which we also outgrew fairly quickly. In February of 2014, we purchased, our current, 14,000 square foot warehouse to become our HomeStore and to provide an area for our construction crew to store tools, materials, and to use in inclement weather.
The HomeStore is a home improvement outlet that sells new and gently-used donated merchandise. Items include appliances, building supplies, furniture, and household items. The HomeStore allows community members to donate their items for re-sale, keeping them out of the landfill. All items are sold at a discount, allowing persons of every income level to purchase items. Volunteers receive, sort and assist customers. Revenues generated by the store fund the construction costs to build affordable, safe and energy efficient Habitat homes.
