WICHITA — The Habitat for Humanity ReStore shop is doubling its space with a move to the Plaza West shopping center at the southwest corner of Central and West.

"We are just growing," says director Katrina McGuigan. "We're getting a lot of good stuff coming in from our donors and just needed to find a bigger showroom floor space."

The ReStore shop is a retail discount home improvement store that has new and used merchandise donated by public.

"We exist to support Habitat for Humanity," McGuigan says.

The current showroom is 6,000 square feet at the southwest corner of Harry and Hillside. The new one will be 12,000 square feet and have 3,000 square feet more for storage.

"Our loyal customers will easily follow us," McGuigan says. "And we'll have a whole new, fresh set of customers on that side of town."

She says the new store will be in a more visible, high-traffic area with a Walmart Neighborhood Market in the same center and Dillons across the street.

"This just makes all the sense in the world for us."
