Helena Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore finds a new home

Phil Drake

The Helena Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore is getting a new home of its own.

It is moving from its previous location that hugs the railroad tracks at 1531 National Ave. about two miles away to 1320 Market Ave., in a new, bigger building that briefly housed a Sears store and puts it a stone’s throw from some hardware store giants.

Jacob Kuntz, executive director of Helena Area Habitat for Humanity, said the move provides Habitat with more space and the organization had been looking to expand. The new ReStore has about 9,000 square feet on the showroom with storage space in back, making for a total of 11,500 square feet.

Kuntz said he felt good about the move.

“I’m not nervous one bit,” he said, adding they have been talking for five years about a new location. “I feel great about it.”
