Sale-a-bration planned at Midcoast Habitat's ReStore
Rockport — On Saturday, June 1, Midcoast Habitat’s ReStore in Rockport will have a sale-a-bration in support of Maine’s newest Habitat ReStore, in Kennebunk.
Visit the ReStore on Route 90, across from Tolman Pond, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for savings of 10 to 20 percent on already discounted items, refreshments, and a build workshop for children.
Saturday’s sale-a-bration kicks off a partnership between Denny’s restaurants and Habitat for Humanity ReStore retail locations statewide. Habitat ReStores sell donated, reusable kitchen cabinets, building materials, appliances, plumbing, lighting fixtures and furniture at 50 to 75 percent off retail price.
Materials are donated by homeowners or are overstocks from lumber and supply stores, and all proceeds from the ReStores support Habitat for Humanity’s mission to provide decent, affordable and energy efficient housing for Maine families in need.
From June 1 to July 15, Denny’s and Maine’s six ReStores will offer co-promotional incentives to their Maine customers in a program called Denny’s Gives Back to Habitat. Denny’s, and its affiliate Famous Dave’s Barbecue in Scarborough, will provide coupons good for 10 percent off ReStore purchases at any of the six Maine ReStores in Portland, Bangor, Ellsworth, Bath, Rockport, and Kennebunk. The restaurants will also be selling ReStore coloring sheets to their youngest patrons, with proceeds to benefit Habitat for Humanity.
“We are grateful to Denny’s for publicizing our mission of providing decent, affordable and energy-efficient housing to Main families in need,” said Sue Inches, executive director of Habitat for Humanity Maine, in a news release. “The ReStore model supports this mission by funding more Habitat home builds through the sale of high-quality donated building supply items.”
ReStores throughout Maine will be providing their customers with 20 percent off coupons for Denny’s Restaurants in Ellsworth, Portland, Auburn, Bangor, Augusta, and Rockland, as well as Famous Dave’s.
“Habitat for Humanity ReStores are a gem in their communities,” said Joe Cloutier, owner of Denny’s Maine franchises. “ReStores provide valuable opportunities for donating and recycling of reusable building materials, for volunteering, and for awesome bargain shopping in their respective communities. We are proud to shine a light on Habitat’s mission and charitable work.”
