Donations

Every ReStore is different, offering a unique shopping experience for Canadians seeking to add something new to their home.  The inventory is always changing as it is dependent on the generosity of corporate and private donors. Items are donated daily so each trip will bring you something new.  If you are able to drop-off your donation, please call the ReStore first to ensure your donation is acceptable as some items normally accepted can be overstocked, and may not be accepted from time to time.

The ReStore cannot accept any unsuitable or unsaleable materials, and we do not have a garbage disposal service for these items. We reserve the right to turn down any donation we are unable to sell. All donations must be inspected during our normal business hours. Dropping off materials outside of store hours is considered DUMPING and is subject to a fine.
