Our ReStore Policies

ReStore Update

The ReStore hours of operation are 9am-5pm Tuesday through Saturday. Please call the Restore to book a donation drop off time available between 9am-4pm (as our back gate remains closed) OR to arrange a donation pick up by our team. We also welcome you to email the ReStore at restore@habitatsc.ca for this service.

As province wide COVID-19 restrictions ease, wearing a mask in the ReStore is not mandated but a personal choice. 

We appreciate your patience and your business during these challenging times. We are in this together!

Refunds/ Returns

New Products:

Habitat for Humanity Sunshine Coast ReStore will gladly exchange or refund items within 7 days when accompanied by a receipt.  Items not in their original state may be subject to a restocking fee of 20%.  

Used Products:

A store credit will be issued for all used products returned to the ReStore within seven days.    

Unfortunately, due to limited floor space, furniture purchases are not eligible for return or refund.  Wherever possible, we provide customers with a sample cushion to take home for the purpose of determining suitability.

Warranty Items

All Habitat for Humanity appliances are tested upon arrival and leave the store with a 30 day warranty.  If your appliance fails within the first 30 days, we will issue you a store credit that you can apply towards future purchases.


We accept Visa, Mastercard and Debit.  A minimum purchase of $5.00 applies to all debit purchases.


Every effort is made to ensure that goods are priced reasonably and competitively.  Every purchase made at the ReStore helps to build affordable housing for local families.  

Store Credits and Gift Certificates

Store credits are issued in store.  Gift Certificates are available upon request.  Gift Cards and store credits do not have an expiry date.  


Sunshine Coast ReStore staff is happy to hold purchases for up to three (3) hours.  Just ask our ReStore staff for a “Sale Pending” tag.  

Let Us Help You Help Us

Call us before you begin a renovation project, to verify that the items that you wish to donate are on our list of items we accept or send a photo to restore@habitatsc.ca and we’ll get right back to you.  Also, please note that the total value of items donated should not exceed the operational costs of the pick up.
