Muskoka North ReStore - Canada's 76th Habitat Restore

It was a long time coming, but we finally opened the doors to our new ReStore in Huntsville! The first day was more successful than we could have imagined, and we are so thrilled to be able to serve the Huntsville community. Going by the name of "Muskoka North ReStore," this is Canada's 76th Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and one of over 750 worldwide. 
Our ReStore outside of Bracebridge has brought great opportunities to the community in terms of volunteerism, accepting diversity, reducing landfill waste and supporting our build projects, and to expand these elements further throughout Muskoka is something we take great pride in.

Weeks leading up to the big day, we were fortunate to get to know our new team of staff and volunteers, who were busy learning the ropes, practicing their skills and helping put the finishing touches on our first donations to the store. The Muskoka North ReStore family united on opening day, and look forward to announcing a date for their Grand Opening Ceremony, where the local community will be able to join them in celebration.
