One way Re-Source York fulfills its mission is to provide a retail outlet for low-cost home improvement items while at the same time recycling these items to avoid increased landfill waste.
Contractors, remodelers and do-it-yourselfers in the know make Re-Source York their first stop for any project. Our building and renovation supply house – packed with everything from nuts and bolts and hinges to windows, doors, bathroom fixtures and full kitchen cabinet set ups is located at 161 East Ninth Avenue in North York.* Store hours are Tuesday through Friday 9AM to 5PM, Saturday 9AM to 4PM.
Not taking on a renovation project right now? You might want to visit the Re-Source York home furnishings store at 405 Carlisle Avenue, York, right across the street from the York Fairgrounds. It’s a bargain hunters dream, holding treasures old and new, whether you’re looking for household basics, retro conversation starters, or collectibles. There is also a quickly-revolving inventory of good condition furniture. With all the scavenging fun of a neighborhood yard sale, you can shop without worrying about the weather.
Started as a non-profit building supply and home improvement resale store in Spring 2002 as Re-Stor-York, the social enterprise was a collaboration between York Habitat for Humanity and Bell Socialization Services, Inc. Effective July 1, 2009, the name was changed, Bell became the sole partner, and soon thereafter our second location was opened.
Being a valuable profit source for York-based charity, Bell Socialization Services, is a key component of the Re-Source York operation. Another is providing employment to low-income disabled persons - primarily Bell service users – to help develop vocational and socialization skills. Some of these employees have become long term members of the store team; many others have successfully transitioned into other work environments.
*Please Note, we moved the home improvement inventory to the North York location in January 2012. There is no longer a Re-Source York store at 235 N. Beaver Street in York.
