Habitat for Humanity Opens Third Retail Store
Habitat for Humanity will celebrate the opening of its new Southeast Portland "ReStore" in the Gateway district on Friday. The nonprofit once held occasional garage sales to offload extra building material from its home sites, but its retail arm has mushroomed into three locations expected to bring in $475,000 this year for Habitat projects. The store, at 10445 SE Cherry Blossom Dr., also will accept donations. Habitat for Humanity projects that the three locations -- including the stores in Beaverton and Vancouver -- will bring in as much as $1 million annually within five years.
