On Saturday, the Habitat Re-Store in Rockingham is doing some Spring cleaning and selling its already low-cost items at further discounted prices.
The Re-Store has offered to partner with local United Way agencies, and any who want to participate in the sale will receive the proceeds for the day.
“We’ve just accumulated an overflow of goods, and think that donating the sale profits to local charitable agencies is a good way to give back,” said Chris Carpenter, affiliate operations manager with Habitat for Humanity of the NC Sandhills.
United Way agencies were invited to bring their own items to sell, or just to show up and help out with the Re-Store sale.
“I’m very excited for the opportunity to partner with the Habitat Re-Store for a big yard sale,” said Melanie Carnes, Sandhills Children’s Center director in Rockingham. “I’ve tried to have yard sales before at the Children’s Center, but they never turned out very well. Chris (Carpenter) has done such a great job advertising this, and it’s in such a good location I think we’ll have a terrific turnout.”
The Sandhills Children’s Center will be selling items like cribs, infant bouncy seats, a rocking chair, file cabinets and toys.
“The good thing is that whatever we don’t sell, we can just donate to the Habitat Re-Store,” she said.
Volunteers from the Backpack Pals of Richmond County will also set up shop at the yard sale.
“We’ll be selling sausage biscuits and coffee in the morning, and pies, cakes and hot dogs later in the day,” said Pastor Steve Crews, who runs the program.
The yard sale will be in front of the Habitat Re-Store, which is located in the Lowe’s shopping center in Rockingham. The sale will start at 7 a.m. and last until 2 p.m.
Trey Robbins, the manager at the Re-Store, said the store will also open at 7 a.m. and items inside will be discounted as well.
