Every purchase helps build brighter futures
what are ReStores?
ReStores are the best-kept secret in home improvement and building supplies shopping in Kamloops. Save 30% to 90% off the retail price while funding homes for those in need. At our ReStore Donation Centres, 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 sales covers 100% of the cost of Habitat for Humanity Kamloops’ operations which extends to four regional districts in central and northern BC. That means that every dollar donated to Habitat for Humanity can go directly towards building homes for families in need.
Visit our ReStore and discover that special vintage, antique or retro item you’ve been searching for. You may also find that amazing deal on a gently-used, top of the line appliances, home renovation products, or funiture. The bonus is knowing that your purchase is doing good for others too!

No Experience is necessary!
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.
As swamper you will get to ride along in our 3 ton delivery truck. You will spend your time delivering items that people have purchased from the store, or picking up items that people have donated. Being able to lift large heavy objects is very important for this position.
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.
