Discount store’s third location in King County

For the Reporter

Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County opens the nonprofit’s third Home Improvement Outlet Store in King County in Auburn with a grand opening celebration Friday and Saturday, July 13-14.

The discount store, at 1407 Auburn Way S., will offer high-quality donated new and gently-used furniture, building materials, tools, appliances, doors, windows, cabinets, bathroom and lighting fixtures, flooring and more – all sold at a discount of 50 percent or more off retail pricing

“Shoppers will not only find incredible bargains on everything they need to refresh or repair their homes, they’ll also help our low-income neighbors across King County with every purchase they make,” said Gail Luxenberg, chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County. “The proceeds from store sales support Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.”

With existing stores in Bellevue and Southcenter, Habitat for Humanity brings its third discount outlet in the area to South King County with the Auburn store. Community residents are invited to celebrate the grand opening with food, beverages, prizes and fun activities beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, July 13.

“We are thrilled to find a home for our newest store in the city of Auburn,” Luxenberg added. “We look forward to providing the community with a unique option for improving their homes while helping others.”

Habitat for Humanity relies on donated goods from individuals and businesses to stock their home improvement outlets. Building supply and furniture stores, contractors and remodelers, homeowners and renters may contact Habitat at habitatskc.org/store/donate-to-store or 206-957-6914, ext. 52, to schedule pickup of their excess and unwanted materials and furniture.
