Update 3/18/2020

Following guidance issued from Habitat for Humanity International, we have temporarily closed the Surplus Sale store and the Habitat office to the public. 

We are mindful that the Surplus Sale has become an important community resource, as well as the main source of funding for us build and repair homes for local families in need. But the risk COVID19 poses to our volunteers, staff, donors and shoppers makes it necessary to take this precaution.

We evaluate weekly the status of the store and office closure.  Check back here or watch our Facebook page for the latest updates.


The Palouse Habitat Surplus Sale store is a nonprofit home improvement store and donation center that sells new and gently used items to the public at a fraction of the retail price.  All proceeds are used by Palouse Habitat for Humanity to build and repair homes for low-income families in Latah and Whitman counties.  Anyone is welcome to volunteer, donate, and shop at the store.
