Habitat For Humanity Gets New Store

Smith County's Habitat for Humanity resale store is moving to a bigger and better location.   Volunteers from Best Buy and habitat's board members were busy this afternoon renovating what used to be a furniture store. This building has twice as much space as its current resale store. Habitat's board members will also be moving their offices in this building.

"What's exciting about this building is we've been located on Locust Street and this building is so well seen that we feel like maybe we will be able to triple the amount of income that we get off of our resale store," said Director of Development for Habitat for Humanity Brenda Whitely.   The store will be called Habitat ReStore and it will have its grand opening next Saturday. Shortly after, the board will move their offices into the building.
