Giving back to their customers on July 18, 2009 with a fun day of shopping specials, food and entertainment.

Venice, FL, July 10, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The Venice area Habitat for Humanity Re-Store is hosting its Customer Appreciation Day on July 18, 2009 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A fun day filled with exciting entertainment, special store sales and tasty food is planned for all to enjoy.

Events include special department store close-outs, a giant garage sale held inside and out as well as all-day bargains. Customers can enter for a chance to win a 20-minute $200 shopping spree at the store.

After a long day of shopping, customers are invited to enjoy hot dogs, drinks and chips. Music will be provided by Bandana from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Bandana hails from Venice and has been voted “best band” in the Venice Gondolier Sun Readers Choice Awards for the last 10 years in a row.

“I am really looking forward to this event,” stated Brian Dickerson, General Manager at the Re-Store. “It’s a fun day for our customers. We enjoy giving back and being able to help those in need at the same time.”

Habitat Re-Stores are retail outlets where quality, used and surplus building materials are sold at a fraction of normal prices. Proceeds from Re-Stores help local affiliates fund the construction of Habitat houses within the community. Many affiliates across the United States and Canada operate successful Re-Stores—some of which raise enough funds to build an additional 10 or more houses per year.

Materials sold by Habitat Re-Stores are usually donated from building supply stores, contractors, demolition crews or from individuals who wish to show their support for Habitat. In addition to raising funds, Re-Stores help the environment by rechanneling good, usable materials into use.

Shop. Donate. Volunteer. The Habitat for Humanity Re-Store is located behind Perkins at 1400 Ogden Road in Venice, Florida. They are open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. For more information, please call 941-493-0529.
