SOMERSET COUNTY, NJ - Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity is launching a Habitat ReStore in the Somerset County area.

Habitat is looking for unused retail space (about 10,000 to 15,000 square feet) in Somerset County that could support a local Habitat ReStore. Anyone who has a space that can be offered at an affordable rent is being asked to partner with Raritan Valley Habitat to build a stronger community.

Habitat ReStores sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Habitat will use the proceeds from the store to build more homes for more families in Hunterdon and Somerset counties.
