A 10,000-square-foot affordable home-improvement center is open in Los Angeles, Habitat for Humanity announced Thursday.

The San Gabriel Valley chapter of Habitat for Humanity cut the ribbon on its newest ReStore location in Atwater Village with support from both the Atwater Village and Glendale Chambers of Commerce, a statement said.

The Atwater Village ReStore offers a variety of low-cost building materials, including appliances, furniture, hardware and other discounted merchandise. Selling these donated, new and used, items to the public supports San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity in its mission to build affordable homes in Southern California.

Renovation of the 5201 West San Fernando Road address took longer than initially expected with work completed at the beginning of this year, the statement said.

“Our new Atwater Village ReStore was envisioned as a resource where the community can come shop while directly supporting local affordable housing projects,” said San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Sonja Yates.

The Habitat for Humanity Atwater Village ReStore will be holding a Grand Opening “Community Day” event on Saturday, May 2, from 9 am-5 pm. This event will be open to the public and feature a 20 percent off sale. The event will also include a beer garden sponsored by Golden Road Brewing, a local Atwater Village business.
