How do I schedule a pick up?

How often do you receive new inventory?
We receive new inventory every day. It is very rare that we know what we are getting in ahead of time. If there is something you are looking for, keep checking back with us. We recommend that you stop by once a week to see how quickly our inventory can turn over. What is here today will probably be gone by tomorrow!
Why didn't the ReStore accept my donation?
In some cases, the ReStore may find itself overwhelmed with a particular item. If we run out of storage space or fear that incoming donations may be damaged because of a lack of proper space, we may refuse your item. In addition, if your donation does not meet our guidelines, we are unable to accept it. At the time of donation, please ensure the item is clean, free of nails, with all parts connected and does not contain or carry any hazard materials.
