Rolf Boone reports in The Olympian:
“South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity has opened a store in Yelm, its second in Thurston County that sells recycled furniture, appliances, building supplies and materials.
The store opened last month at 412 Yelm Ave. E., not far from the movie theaters, and is beginning to attract both buyers and donors, regional manager Caleb White said Thursday.”
“The nonprofit, which is known for its home-building efforts, hopes to add to the traction Friday when the store hosts an open house for local officials and Yelm-area business leaders.
About 15 to 30 people are expected to attend, White said.
The store occupies a 5,500-square-foot location that used to be a heavy-equipment rental business.”

From Timberland Bank’s Newsletter:
“Tmberland staff members from Thurston County had an opportunity to tour the new South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity (SPSHFH) ReStore building now open in Yelm. We are pleased to have partnered with SPSHFH by contributing $5,000 toward their expansion into Yelm. Habitat for Humanity operates ReStores in many locations and can be a great resource for those looking for pre-owned furniture and building supplies. They gladly accept donations of building materials and furniture in good condition with the proceeds from the sale going toward building another Habitat home.”
