Habitat's new Portland ReStore location is closer to many of the group's home-building projects.
Habitat for Humanity’s Portland ReStore ˜ a favored outlet for recycled goods afficiandos and bargain-hunters alike ˜ has moved out of the Central Eastside Industrial District.
The relocated store opened last Saturday.
Cindy Correll, a marketing manager for the local Habitat outfit, said the new location will better serve more customers.
“We wanted to be more on the outer east side so we can be more accessible to people outside of the central area, she said. “For instance, it’s easier for people from Gresham to get here.
“We’re also more accessible to a lot more of our projects,” which are going up east of Interstate 205, Correll added.
The group had leased the Southeast Morrison Street building but had sought a more retail-friendly site for the last three years.
“This gives us what we really need to run a successful retail operation, such as parking, lighting and accessibility,” Correll said.
