Habitat for Humanity is a housing organization that builds affordable housing in partnership with people in need. Montreal’s chapter is centred in Sud-Ouest, where they have built several houses in the area, and in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. This year they start building a duplex on St-Clothide in St-Henri.
In addition to building houses, they also run the Re-Store. The Re-Store is a building material liquidation centre whose profits go towards Habitat for Humanity’s mission and projects. The Re-store carries new merchandise donated by distributors, retailers, manufacturers, and construction companies, and sells it at reduced rates. This is a cheap alternative to your local renovation store!
The Montreal Re-Store will be moving this August from 1177 Newman boulevard to the old IGA building at 4399 Notre Dame St. West in St-Henri. The re-opening of the store should be on September 1st wlll be on September 8th. Until August 15th there is a big liquidation sale at the Newman Boulevard location.

Montreal’s Habitat for Humanity needs volunteers to help out with the relocating of their Re-Store and renovating their new store. To help out, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be appreciative of any help they can get!
