Habitat for Humanity of Omaha is opening its second ReStore to offer new and used surplus building materials such as flooring, paint, plumbing fixtures, electrical fixtures and appliances.
The 28,000-square-foot store opening Friday at 10930 Emmet St. is twice the size of the organization's other ReStore near 24th and Leavenworth Streets, said David Klitz, ReStore director for Habitat for Humanity of Omaha.
"We've been so successful with our first location that we are running out of space," Klitz said.
The northwest Omaha store will a have a ribbon-cutting today at 9:30 a.m. and the public will be invited inside for a sneak peek before the store opens at 10 a.m. Friday.
The new store means more jobs for the community. It will have 20 employees, five of whom will work full time.
Store hours will be 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.
The ReStore accepts donations of new, used and surplus materials from businesses and the general public.
