New Eastside Location Offers Thrift Bargains and New Merchandise
Address: 4601 Northfield Road, North Randall

Building upon the success of its west side location, Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity is having a grand opening for its second store located at 4601 Northfield Road in North Randall on Saturday, April 11th.
“Our current store surpassed one million dollars in sales this past year,” said John Habat, Habitat’s Executive Director. “Many customers and donors from the east side of Cuyahoga County have long requested a more accessible store location. This store will offer the same merchandise at the same bargain prices in a more traditional retail showroom setting.”
The ReStore is known as northeast Ohio’s number one thrift restoration destination and also a widely popular thrift household goods store. For the second year in a row, it was named as Best of Cleveland Awards for Hardware Stores.
The new location boasts a 16,000 square foot showroom where customers can find everything from flooring, furniture, appliances, light fixtures, tools, building supplies, antiques and a wide variety of vintage goods. There are also many new, never used items such as three distinct lines of cabinets, Kichler lighting, quality recycled paint, hardware, tools, doors and windows – all at prices far below retail.
“The ReStore is important not only because it provides very affordable household and construction goods,” said Habat, “but also because it provides a substantial amount of revenue that support Habitat’s affordable housing mission.” Last year, the west side ReStore generated over $500,000 for housing.
Habitat’s 2015 housing initiative is providing affordable homes for 16 to 20 families in addition to helping more than 50 current homeowners with improvements to their properties in targeted neighborhoods.
Habitat is partnering with the Famicos Foundation to fully rehab at least six houses in the Circle North-South Glenville neighborhood. Habitat is also partnering with the Stockyards, Clark-Fulton and Brooklyn Community Development Office to rehab at least five homes in this near west side neighborhood. Habitat expects to rehab an additional six to 10 houses that become available in other neighborhoods that complement our community revitalization strategies.
The new east side store is conveniently located close to interstates I-480 and I-271, and close to ThistleDown Racino. Store hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 10am to 4pm. Visit www.clevelandhabitat.org for more information.
