Habitat for Humanity store at new location, promises ‘exciting future’


Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity’s (MVHH) ReStore is bigger and better than ever at its new location, 1675 S. Valley Drive. The grand opening for the new location was held earlier this month. The store is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

“We’re excited for the future this brings,” said MVHH Executive Director April Estrada.

The store says a constantly changing inventory of widely diverse merchandise that includes used furniture; large and small appliances; lighting, HVAC and plumbing supplies; lumber; books; housewares; sinks, tubs and tile; home décor; artwork; a wide array of tools; and much more.

The store also sells MVHH T-shirts and bags.

“You never know. We might just have exactly what you’re looking for,” Estrada said.

“It’s always different,” said ReStore Manager Zenaida Medina.

You can ask about special discounts at the ReStore, which, depending on the day of the week, may include specials for senior citizens, military and others.

The ReStore welcomes donations of gently used items and can pick them up.

The ReStore also benefits from donations and support from a number of local businesses, including Lowe’s Home Improvement, Ace Hardware, Kitchen Kraft Home, Big Lots, Western Stoves and Fireplaces and Sher-Wood Cabinetry.

Proceeds from the store, which first opened in 2007, help MVHH partner with local families to build affordable homes in Las Cruces.

Mesilla Valley Habitat for Humanity

MVHH celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2018. It has helped make homeowners of nearly 120 local families during the past three decades. Qualifying homeowners are selected based on economic need, ability to pay their share of the costs and willingness to help with the construction. Every local family that qualifies for a MVHH house must contribute 300-500 hours of sweat equity helping to build their own home or someone else’s. Each participating family makes a small down payment on the house and pays a monthly long-term, low-interest mortgage.
