Customers save over $1.6 million annually through RE Store purchases

  • Our sales totaling over 1.6 million dollars each year are based on items priced at 50% or less than the price of similar new items
  • Saving money for our donors on their disposal fees while contributors receive a tax-deductible receipt or a in-store trade credit

Building community by building skills
