Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie & Area is excited to announce that the ReStore will now offer a Seniors’ Day discount to those who are 65+ years young on the first Thursday of every month.
This year, October 1st marks the 30th Anniversary of the United Nations International Day of Older Persons and is also National Seniors Day in Canada. It is an occasion for Canadians to celebrate the profound contributions of seniors in our homes, communities, and workplaces and to show appreciation and thanks for older persons.
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore has decided to show its appreciation for their senior customers by introducing this Seniors’ Day discount on October 1st. On the first Thursday of every month, seniors will receive an additional 25% off their purchase – even on items already marked down.
“We are really pleased to be able to offer a special day each month to appreciate our senior customers. Seniors in our community contribute to Habitat’s mission in such a huge way – making up a significant number of our devoted volunteers and customers. We truly couldn’t do what we do without them,” states Amanda Ridley, ReStore Manager.
Habitat recommends showing appreciation for the seniors in your life by thanking them for the impact they’ve had in your life, catching up on the phone, taking a walk or cooking a meal together, or treating them to a day out – perhaps with a visit to the Habitat ReStore.
If you’re unfamiliar with the shop on the corner of White Oak Drive, the Habitat ReStore is a home improvement outlet offering new and gently used building supplies, kitchens, décor, appliances, furniture and much more for a fraction of the retail price and without HST. ReStores are a social enterprise and flagship fundraising tool for Habitats across Canada, contributing greatly to Habitat’s ability to carry out the mission of building affordable housing for families in need.
Habitat is also currently building a fully accessible home on Oakwood Drive for a tri-generational family that includes an older family member who has recently suffered from a stroke. Habitat hopes the home’s accessibility will help the senior family member to age in place safely and comfortably. The non-profit will continue to serve diverse populations in Sault Ste. Marie through their Affordable Homeownership Program.
