Huge range of goods

At the ReStore you can buy furniture, clothing, kitchenware, household appliances, jewellery, sporting goods, art works, books, tools, CDs, vinyl records and many more intriguing household items. Everything sold at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore goes towards building homes for Christchurch families in need.

DIY & building materials

Along with our regular range of goods, our Burnside branch at 567 Wairakei Rd has a huge section devoted to DIY and renovation building materials, from doors and windows to tiles, baths and vanities.

Shop on TradeMe

Many of our more unique and special items can be viewed and purchased in our TradeMe store. This is just a tiny sample of what you will find in our enormous branches at Sydenham and Burnside.

Volunteer at the ReStore

Habitat ReStore relies on volunteers – without them we simply could not open the doors.

You are sure to find a volunteer role that would appeal at the ReStore. Volunteer roles include:

  • Serving donors and customers;
  • Sorting and appraising incoming goods;
  • Presenting goods for sale;
  • Doing truck pick-ups and deliveries;
  • Restoring furniture;
  • Managing TradeMe sales;
  • Entering administration data;
  • Monitoring customer safety.

And most importantly, sharing lots of energy, smiles and laughter! There is a role suitable for almost anyone with minimum levels of physical fitness and mobility.

All your good work will help Habitat build homes for families in Christchurch and overseas.

Training opportunities

For many of our volunteers, working at the ReStore is a helpful step towards future employment.

Our Service IQ programme provides training certification for retail service workers.

Volunteer self-check questions:
