Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - The Habitat for Humanity ReStore has been in Cheyenne for five years, but it's one of the overlooked thrift stores in the community.
Established in 2009, the store is made up of nearly 100 percent in donations, save the Green Sheen paint they sell at a reduced price.
The donations are tax deductible, and the items are sold at 50-70 percent reduced price.
Donations come from the community, but also from contractors, and major chain stores like Lowes.
Other partners for the Habitat ReStore include, Mead Lumber, Grandview, Cheyenne Light Fuel and Power, AARP, Green Sheen, A+ Charlies, and F.E. Warren Air Force Base.
Besides being low cost, the store also benefits the environment. Executive Director Kate Wright says the stores divert seven to ten tons of recyclable items every year.
