Habitat for Humanity expands Langhorne ReStore; grand opening in early September
MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP >> Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County’s Langhorne ReStore, which opened in 2016, has added 8,000 additional square feet of space to better serve the community. And to celebrate, the ReStore will be holding a grand reopening on Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The community is invited to browse, take advantage of special sales and giveaways, and learn how to become part of the Habitat team of volunteers.
“Our expansion brings our total space to nearly 30,000 square feet,” says B.J. Breish, ReStore Director. “We are glad to be able to celebrate our grand reopening with the community and showcase the tremendous amount of new and gently used furniture, cabinets, appliances, building supplies, housewares, and décor in the store.”
Lowes donated paint from their vendors, including Olympia, Benjamin Franklin Paint and Sherwin Williams. Habitat volunteer, Paul Sicilia, owner of Yardley Painting Company and his assistant donated their time to paint the new space. Solid Wood Cabinets has donated $100,000 worth of vanity cabinets to be sold at the Langhorne ReStore.
“We are extremely grateful to everyone who joined with us in the construction of the new space,” says Breish. “With the additional 8,000 square feet, we are in need of more donations to fill the store and more volunteers to restock merchandise, greet customers and write up sales tickets.”
The Bucks County ReStores keep 100,000 pounds of materials out of landfills each month while financially supporting Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build affordable homes for local families. The Habitat Bucks ReStores, located in Chalfont and Langhorne, sell overstocked, discontinued, new and used building materials, furniture and household goods to the public. These items are donated by manufacturers, retail stores, contractors, and area residents.
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is located in the Langhorne Square Shopping Center at 1337 E Lincoln Hwy, Langhorne, PA.

Since then, it has built 106 affordable homes in Bucks County through its Homeownership Program, which provides an opportunity for low-income families to build strength, stability and self-reliance by partnering with Habitat. Its home repair program, A Brush with Kindness, also makes interior and exterior repairs to help aging and disabled individuals remain safe in their own homes.
