Habitat for Humanity Peterborough & Kawartha Region’s ReStore location on Braidwood Avenue will be closing on June 15.

The non-profit organization announced on Wednesday (April 17) that its lease is ending on the building that houses one of its two Peterborough ReStores — home improvement and building supply stores that sell gently used building materials, furniture, appliances, and home décor items.

While Habitat has been searching for a suitable new location for the ReStore at 550 Braidwood Avenue — known as the Peterborough South ReStore — in advance of the end of the lease, it has been unable to find one.

In addition to the Peterborough South ReStore, Habitat operates the Peterborough North ReStore at 300 Milroy Drive and the Lindsay ReStore at 55 Angeline Street North. Sales at the ReStores fund Habitat’s operations to help local families and individuals have access to safe, decent, and affordable homeownership.

Originally located at 780 Erskine Avenue, the Peterborough South ReStore moved to 550 Braidwood Avenue in 2014, in the large industrial building that also houses Global Point Logistics, which owns the property.

Global Point Logistics is planning to build a 77-unit residential development in vacant land at the northeast corner of the intersection of Braidwood Avenue and Monaghan Road. The development, which would include a four-storey apartment building and townhouses, was approved by Peterborough city council last June.

While Habitat says the closure of Peterborough South ReStore will not affect its operations, the organization is encouraging the community to continue supporting Habitat’s work by shopping at the Peterborough North ReStore and the Lindsay ReStore. Any donations to Habitat should also be redirected to one of these two ReStores.

A store-wide end-of-lease sale at the Braidwood Avenue location will begin on Monday, April 22nd, with 50 per cent off all items.

Habitat is continuing the search for an available commercial space to replace the Peterborough South Restore, and is asking anyone with information to contact them at [email protected] or 705-874-0201.
