About The Habitat Store


1221 Harris Street, Charlottesville, VA 22903, US

Mission Statement

The Habitat Store supports Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville by selling new and salvaged building materials and home furnishings to the public at discount prices. All proceeds from the Habitat Store contribute to the construction of new Habitat homes. The Habitat Store participates in Habitat for Humanity International's overall environmental initiative by diverting usable materials from the waste stream while promoting the responsible stewardship of natural resources.


The Habitat Store was established in May of 2003 to provide a self-sustaining funding source to HFHGC. We also seek to extend Habitat's mission by making home maintenance more affordable. A secondary, yet significant, benefit of the store is the recycling and reuse of surplus new and used building materials, thereby reducing the flow of materials in the waste stream.

Five full-time employees and a team of dedicated volunteers contribute to the daily operations of the store. We are open Monday-Friday 10:00 am-6:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am-5:00pm.

We sell and accept donations of new and used residential building materials, including appliances, doors, windows, hardware, lighting, cabinets, architectural items, sinks, toilets, lumber, flooring and some furniture.


We'll work with your schedule.
