When did you start working at Habitat Wake? I was hired in April 2014.

What is your favorite thing about working for Habitat? I like working with happy people and working for a cause.

What does your typical work day look like? Organize the warehouse before the store opens, then I spend the day accepting donations from our generous donors.

What do you do in your spare time? I like to hike with my dog and metal detect, and also spend as much time as possible at the beach.

New discount policy

If you’ve shopped recently at the Wake Forest ReStore or the Cary ReStore you may have noticed that they have a color-coded markdown policy, making the bargains super easy to spot. Now the other four stores are following suit! We are rolling out the new discount policy county-wide starting Wednesday, August 2nd (we are closed on Tuesday, August 1st for an all-staff build day).

With the new system, we will mark pieces down every two weeks instead of every month, and you’ll be able to tell by the color of the price tag instead of the date. Pieces will be marked down in increments of 20%.

Our goal is to increase velocity and give our customers better bargains more often, and we are sure this new discount policy will do the trick. Feel free to ask questions of a ReStore manager the next time you drop by!
