Everything Must Go and It’s On Sale!

In preparation for closing day Saturday, November 20, we have taken markdowns!
Take 25% off every single item in the University ReStore including new and gently-used furniture, appliances, flooring, home decor and more!

Unfortunately, we will no longer be accepting donation drop-offs at the University ReStore. We will gladly accept donations at any of the 6 remaining locations or you can schedule a FREE donation pick-up here.

Closing Date Set

After 5 wonderful years, the University ReStore is set to close its doors for good on Saturday, November 20, 2021. Until then, we will maintain regular business hours (Tues – Sat, 9 am – 4 pm) where you can expect to find the same great variety of new and gently-used furniture, appliances, home decor and more!

We are grateful for the many donors and shoppers who have come through our doors over the years. Your donations and purchases have helped provide affordable homeownership opportunities to countless families in the Charlotte Region.

Habitat Charlotte Region to close University ReStore location

After careful analysis and consideration, Habitat Charlotte Region has made the difficult decision to close our University ReStore location.

A guiding principle of the Our Towns Habitat and Habitat Charlotte Region merger was to combine resources in order to gain efficiencies, reduce costs, and subsequently serve more families. After passing its 5-year anniversary earlier this year, the University ReStore location was never able to fully gain a foothold in the market, and drive revenue levels that delivered a positive net operating income.

Beginning August 24, the University ReStore will reduce its days of operation to Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 4pm. It will be closing in the November timeframe to allow time to wind down operations, and to place University ReStore staff into other roles within retail operations.

The University closure reduces Habitat Charlotte Region’s retail footprint to 6 area locations. We will continue to operate our Pineville, Wilkinson, Wendover, Cornelius, Mooresville and Statesville ReStores.
