Palouse Habitat Surplus Sale Expands Hours
Moscow, Idaho. (August 3, 2022) — The Palouse Habitat Surplus Sale, the Palouse’s source for affordable home improvement and repair materials, is expanding hours to better serve the community.
The Palouse Habitat Surplus Sale is located at 304 N. Main Street in Moscow. It is now open 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday. The Surplus Sale sells donated home improvement and repair items, including lumber, plumbing, electrical, appliances, antiques, furniture and more.
“The store always has a few shoppers rushing in right at 4:59, so we expanded our hours to 6:00 pm to try to serve them better. If it’s popular we’ll keep it that way,” shared Eldon Hodges, Surplus Sale Store Manager. “It’s nice to be open Tuesdays again. We appreciate our staff and volunteers who make it possible.”
Funds raised through the sale of donated materials are used to support Palouse Habitat for Humanity home building and home repair projects for families in need of safe, affordable housing around the Palouse.
