Brainerd, Minnesota Restore: Great place to find used building materials at a great price

Habitat for Humanity's Restore, is a large retail warehouse specializing in second-hand building materials.  Restore is located in an unassuming industrial park in Brainerd, Minnesota, and the location is  open Wednesday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Despite the limited hours, discounted building materials of all kinds can be found for a bargain at Restore, and I have purchased used lumber, plumbing, housewares, windows, doors, and many other heavily discounted household and building materials.  Restore adds new inventory weekly, and many popular materials, like plywood, disappear rather quickly, so I always try to visit Restore early on Wednesday morning, so I can shop the newly added inventory, and save a great deal of money on the building supplies. Before finding Restore, I used to buy building materials for retail price, at the big box lumber stores. Restore is a great option for anyone interested in a great value on used building materials, and many other items.
