Founded in 1989, Montgomery-based Fox Valley Habitat is a nonprofit ministry that partners with working families in need of affordable housing. Volunteers have completed abenson49 units housing over 200 persons in Aurora, North Aurora and Montgomery. To raise funds to build more houses, Habitat opened a ReStore retail operation in March of 2012 at 4100 Fox Valley Center Drive in Aurora's Westfield Shopping Center.

The ReStore is a 28,000-square-foot outlet that offers new and used building and home-decorating materials to the public.

Habitat, a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization, plans to operate the store from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

Rev. Jeff Barrett, Habitat executive director and pastor of Genesis Community Church in Montgomery, said he expects the ReStore to provide Habitat with income to build several homes annually.

"By helping with the ReStore, volunteers will help build more homes than if they were working on one home at a build site," Rev. Barrett said.
