Whether you're looking to donate or you're shopping for furniture, appliances and more, you're likely to find it at one of the five metro Denver ReStore locations. But before you set out on an expedition to your closest ReStore, you should learn a little more about which stores are likely to have what you're looking for.

 

Donation: How it Works

If you are dropping off donations, remember that the donations dock closes one hour before store closing at four of our five locations; the Highlands Ranch ReStore has specific donations hours, since it shares a dock with Goodwill.

If you are dropping donations off to Highlands Ranch, you can bring clothing, toys, and other items to donate to Goodwill at the same time.

In exchange for your donation, you will receive a tax donation receipt. If the value of your donation is over $5,000, you will want to have your donation professionally appraised.

 

What You Can Find in Each Location

While every Denver Metro ReStore sells furniture, appliances, cabinets and much more, certain stores have specific offerings that makes them a little different from the rest.

 

The Denver ReStore

The Denver ReStore was the first location opened in the Denver Metro Area and is by far the largest location. With 32,000 sq. ft., this location has the biggest inventory and sells everything you could find at big box stores like Home Depot. Due to its size, the Denver ReStore can get really busy at peak hours!

The Denver ReStore also has a really passionate staff that has a lot of fun when working. Whether you're looking for a wide selection of inventory, great deals on cabinets, lights, couches, doors, windows and more, a plethora of volunteer opportunities, or a huge yard with things like patio furniture, lawn and garden supplies and building materials and more, check out our Denver location.

 

The Littleton ReStore

The Littleton ReStore is the second biggest ReStore, and also has a large inventory. The top sellers here are cabinet sets, appliances, and furniture. You can find an appliance testing center at this location, where used appliances that require water are tested to ensure they are working, and this location even has a used bookstore. On Thursdays, bring grocery bags at this location or the Wheat Ridge ReStore and fill them with books for only $2 each.

This location is perfect for dropping off your gently used furniture thanks to the drive-thru donations dock. Remember, we cannot accept all donations (for a full list, click here). 

Always in need of new volunteers, the Littleton ReStore needs people that can help with customer service, appliance testing, and helping customers load their cars or trucks. 

 

The Aurora ReStore

Our Aurora location is easily accessible by I-225 for those who live on the eastern side of Denver. This store also has an excellent selection of everything you can find at a ReStore. As a slightly smaller ReStore, at 14,000 square feet, the great layout of this store makes shopping easy.

 

The Wheat Ridge ReStore

With a great location off of I-70, the Wheat Ridge ReStore has been serving Wheat Ridge, Golden, Arvada and even folks coming in from the mountains for many years. The Wheat Ridge ReStore often receives great pieces of vintage furniture and antiques as donations, which are perfect for furniture upcycling.

In need of some new patio furniture or a new grill? This location has a yard in the back where customers can find outdoor furniture, grills, roofing materials, lawn mowers, and other lawn and garden goods. This location also houses a small used bookstore. A great community of regular volunteers help out at  the Wheat Ridge ReStore, but they can always benefit from more volunteers to help customers find what they're looking for!

 

The Highlands Ranch ReStore

Last but not least, the Highlands Ranch location is a little special. It is a first-in-the nation partnership with Goodwill and shares a building and a dock with Goodwill.  It is our smallest location with only about 2,000 square feet of floor space, but receives some of our best donations! What most shoppers don't realize is that this location has a back room where additional inventory is kept that helps to feed our larger ReStores.

Despite the limitations of the smallest ReStore in the Denver Metro Area, Highlands Ranch specializes in a few areas. Most noticeably, the Highlands Ranch ReStore has one of the best tool selections in the area. If you need tools to finish your home renovation or just want to improve your toolbox, stop by Highlands Ranch. If we don't have what you're looking for, we can point you to the right building materials store. 

Lastly, Highlands Ranch keeps a Facebook Marketplace listing of current items for sale (check it out here), so you know what's available before you head out.

 

Shop the ReStores First!

Why buy new furniture when you can both save money and help your community by buying gently used items at ReStore? We check every item for stains; tears or damages and our friendly staff ensure a great shopping experience. Stop by for a funky vintage rug or a quirky coffee table for that stylish finishing touch to your decor.
