Salmon Arm ReStore

Used Furniture, Building Materials, & More in Salmon Arm, BC

What is the Salmon Arm ReStore?

ReStores are the best-kept secret in home improvement and building supplies shopping throughout Canada. Save 30% to 90% off the retail price while funding homes for those in need. At our donation centre, we receive new and used furniture, large and small appliances, household goods and building materials donated by homeowners, contractors, retailers and manufacturers, and sell them to the public at greatly reduced prices.

Money raised through Salmon Arm ReStore sales covers 100% of the cost operations That means that every dollar donated to the Salmon Arm Restore can go directly towards building attainable homes for families in need.

As a sales staff you will help customers find what they are looking for and answer questions they might have about furniture, appliances and building supplies. You may also help price and stock shelves as well as help clean up. As a volunteer sales member, bring your cheery disposition and desire to help and chat with customers. No experience is needed but having some knowledge of home repair or sales is always an asset.

As a warehouse staff member you will help sort donations and repair furniture, appliances, lighting and small engines. Volunteers may also do reclamation work where they dismantle furniture, use our wire-stripper, de-nail lumber, remove mortar from bricks or separate and sort metal. No experience is needed, but we are always looking for handy people who have experience as electricians, furniture makers, appliance repairpersons, and have general knowledge of building supplies and tools.

This volunteer position is for your creative spirit. Help us to make our sales floor look its best! Donations arrive at the sorting room and the merchandiser will sort them, clean the items, price and take them out to the floor. Displaying our donations so they look their best in the ReStore helps us to sell items quickly.
