Sandy Kirkland, vice president of Habitat, stated that when the board “embarked on opening a ReStore, we wondered if donations would come in and if customers would shop. Thanks to our customers and the donations of many, the ReStore has been very successful in providing money for the building of several homes in the county and the City of Franklin.”

She also invites people to come by, enjoy a cookie, meet store manager Frank Rickman and also let the ReStore employees show what they have to offer.
