Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio’s Home Centers will be open on Black Friday!

HabitatforHumanity_HOMECENTER SLOGAN LOGOFor the first time in 20 years the Habitat Home Centers will be open on Black Friday. Our stores have always celebrated a very long Thanksgiving break, but with a surplus of merchandise in all three stores the doors will be open Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving.

We don’t expect to see customers lining up at our doors at 3am, but with an abundance of great buys available we know that our customers will leave with smiles on their faces and bargains in their shopping bags.

The opportunity to give the community an avenue to purchase goods at a low cost aligns with what Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio does, ”working to help families in need and to help them build affordable homes for themselves…”

Families who would otherwise not be able to afford new furnishings or home building material can rely on the Home Centers to provide what they need without breaking the bank.

The Habitat Home Centers sell new and donated material to the public at or below retail and proceeds from those sales fund Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio home builds for local low-income families.

What a great way to give back this holiday season by not only knowing you are helping another family purchase their new simple, decent and affordable home all while saving money when shopping at the Home Centers. To learn more about Habitat’s home building program; visit www.HabitatSA.org.

When you shop in any one of the 3 local Habitat Home Centers, you will be amazed to find new dinette sets, mattresses, bedroom sets, cabinets, counter tops, flooring and more.  Donated material ranges from doors and windows to appliances and other “do it yourself” material.

In an effort to capture the attention of more customers, Habitat’s Home Centers have also launched online sales through eBay.  Purchase many of the regular inventory items without the hassle of traffic and long lines.  You can conveniently purchase your goods through PayPal and pick up your merchandise the next business day.

We are excited to extend our business an additional couple of days and offer specials to the community. We have brought in merchandise specifically for Black Friday and know that this will be a great buying opportunity for Home Center customers.

Visit any one of 3 stores between 8am and 6pm this November 28th and 29th to see what’s in stock for you.  Inventory changes frequently so shop often; shop early.






You are invited to shop at the Habitat Home Center and make their first ever Black Friday Sale a success!

Habitat Home Center celebrating 20th Anniversary

HOMECENTER SLOGAN LOGO.1Our first San Antonio Habitat Home Center located at 311 Probandt is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this April!

Since our opening in 1994 in the old Joske’s distribution center; the Home Center has been able to acquire successfully new and used building materials and home improvement merchandise in order to resell it to the public at significant savings over regular retail. All proceeds from sales in the Home Centers support Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio’s home building program.

The resale of goods purchased from liquidators and closeout companies began in 1999, while in-kind donations from individuals and businesses continued. The store, originally opened on a part time basis and staffed by volunteers, is now open full time and staffed by paid employees.

With sales exploding, our second store on Walzem Rd. was opened in early 2004 in a former Service Merchandise location followed by a third Home Center near Marbach and 410 in 2007 in a former Jo-Ann Fabrics.

In order to continue growing and being an asset to the community, the Habitat Home Centers invite you to shop and/or donate at any of our now 3 locations: 311 Probandt St., 5482 Walzem Rd., and 8125 Meadow Leaf Dr.

You can always find plenty of new and used cabinets, doors, windows, furniture, paint sundries, interior/exterior lighting, area rugs, etc.

Please consider any of our three Habitat Home Centers for your next home improvement purchase and/or donation of overstocked, excess or gently used items including motorized vehicles. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Give us a call, don’t trash it all!

An asset to the community for over 15 years, Habitat Home Centers seek to further help the San Antonio community reduce its waste by providing an alternative to the landfill. Instead of throwing away large home improvement items such as:

  • Furniture
  • Lighting
  • Electronics
  • Flooring
  • Storage Units
  • Hardware

San Antonio Residents can help reduce landfill waste by donating these items to any San Antonio area Habitat Home Center. Every donation to the Habitat Home Center qualifies for a tax deduction*.
*as determined by IRS guidelines

Habitat Home Centers are located at:

  • 311 Probandt St. (Downtown) (210) 223-3647
  • 5482 Walzem Rd. (Marbach area) (210) 599-7109
  • 8125 Meadow Leaf (Meadow Leaf area) (210) 674-7500

Don Griffith, Executive Vice President of Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, states “Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio seeks to improve the community. Whether it is by building more homes or by reducing our city’s waste, we are always looking for ways to better our tomorrow.”

Habitat Home Centers are wholly owned by Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio and serve as a home improvement thrift store. By taking in material donations and reselling those donations to the public at a highly discounted price, Home Centers raise money to further benefit Habitat for Humanity’s efforts. Habitat Home Centers are also environmentally friendly stores. These stores seek to rescue over 170 million tons* of material from going into the landfill this year. The Home Center’s slogan “Give Us a Call, Don’t Trash It All” seeks to make San Antonians aware of the fact that they can take advantage of the tax deduction associated with donating their items to the Home Center before throwing them away.
