The Madison Habitat ReStore is one of over eight Habitat ReStores in Wisconsin.

Working in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dane County, the Habitat ReStore retail operation provides a valuable source of cash flow through the sale of donated building materials

The Habitat ReStore is located just off Hwy 51 on Madison's East Side at 208 Cottage Grove Road at the site of the former Jung's Garden Center.

Our goals are to:

Generate cash flow to support Habitat’s home building program
Keep valuable materials out of local area landfills
Provide the community with a source of low cost building materials
Provide an opportunity to volunteer at the Habitat ReStore
Here's how it works:
Habitat for Humanity accepts donations of new and saleable, used building materials such as cabinets, lighting and plumbing fixtures, doors, lumber, flooring, and windows. Some materials will be used to build Habitat houses. The rest will be sold to the public at 50-75% off the retail price. There are over 500 Habitat ReStores in the U.S and Canada.

The Habitat ReStore:

Makes home improvements more affordable.
Helps Habitat build more homes. In an average year, the Habitat ReStore will allow Habitat to build two additional homes in Dane County.
Prevents usable building materials from going to a landfill. The Habitat ReStore keeps close to 1000 tons of building materials out of Dane County's landfills annually.
How you can help:

The Habitat ReStore is an ambitious project, and we need the help of a lot of people in many different ways to make it successful. You can help by volunteering, donating good used building materials, or simply by shopping at the Habitat ReStore.

All donations to the Habitat ReStore are tax deductible.
