July 19: Land Bank, Habitat, TNP announce ‘Pop-Up ReStore’ in Warren

Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership has partnered with the Trumbull County Land Bank and Habitat For Humanity to repurpose materials salvaged from houses scheduled for demolition. The first public sale occurs from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, July 19 at a Land Bank-owned property located at 195 Belmont Ave., N.W. in Warren’s Garden District.

Salvaged materials, including doors, windows and cabinets, will be available to the public. Owner occupants who have purchased Land Bank property in the last six months will receive 50 percent off their purchases.

“This marks the beginning of a long-term effort to make these materials available to the public at deeply discounted prices. We are excited for the partnership with Habitat For Humanity for the knowledge and experience they bring to this effort,” said Shawn Carvin, TNP’s Land Bank program manager.

“We are really excited to bring the ReStore concept to Trumbull County. We hope that this is just the first step in providing used and salvaged materials to the general public for resale while also raising funds for our home building mission. We are thankful to TNP for bringing this innovative opportunity to us,” said Monica Craven.
