PARK CITY, Utah — In its first full summer of additional new merchandise sales, the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for Summit and Wasatch Counties has Saturday outside clothing bin sales where everything is $2 each.
Inside, not only do they have all the things they’ve had for sale for houses for years, but more new clothes for no more than $10 each.
Cody Broadhead has been the store manager for almost five years. He told me on Saturday, “It’s all brand new items that come from a boutique wholesale site which has between 400 and 700 brands. When their Salt Lake City warehouse gets overstuffed, and needs more space, which happens pretty much every week, they’ll donate between eight and 16 palettes of men’s, women’s and kid’s clothing, sheets, lotions, and like acne treatment kits that retail for $150 that we’re able to sell for $25. The outside, $2 clothes shopping is like a fun treasure hunt, I mean, we’ve had coats out there that retail for $1,000.”
100% of the proceeds go towards the causes of the local Habitat for Humanity.
Britney Comer, Board Member of Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties told me, “The new merchandise sales at the ReStore are simply another creative way we as a community can assist with further funding towards the 26 home builds we’re currently supporting to help the wonderful families wishing to have secure housing options. It’s a win win.”
