MONTROSE–Ready, get set, go! Race on over to the Montrose Habitat for Humanity Barn Raising and ReStore Grand Opening Celebration on Friday, Sept. 7 at the Habitat Barn, 1601 North Townsend, and be among the very first to see the new ReStore and Habitat space.

“We are very excited to unveil our new ReStore and office building to the public,” Montrose Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Colleen Burke said. “We want to say thank you as well–we could not have completed this project without the help and support of our community, our board of directors, our sponsors, the City of

Montrose, Montrose ACT, our staff and army of volunteers and, of course USDA Rural Development.”

A ribbon cutting at 12:15 a.m. with the Montrose ACT Redcoats will begin the day on Sept.7, followed by the Barn Raising and ReStore Grand Opening from 6 to 10 p.m. The celebration will feature live music by Box Car & Yengo, as well as a live auction and BBQ supper.

Store will officially open in its new location, with door prizes, hot dogs, soda and a live radio broadcast on KKXK 95 KIX to welcome customers and friends. The move doubles the ReStore’s size to 15,000 square feet and just over ten acres.
