It's been in the works since June, and now a local business in Parkersburg is ready to open its new doors.

The Habitat for Humanity Restore will have its grand opening Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.

The store has relocated from the south side to 7th Street.

With four times the space than the previous store, customers now have more items to choose from.

"We think everyone will really be impressed with the difference. We didn't have furniture, appliances and stuff at the other store. We have a nice selection over here, and I think people are really gonna be pleased when they come in and see their new restore, Greg Halterman, the manager, said.

The stores' hours are Wednesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.

    The Habitat program has prospered every time Alvin Phillips has been at the helm. He is a true guiding spirit to assure that deserving people get the help they need. So what if they remodelled a store to resell items? It's how this country raises capital. You sell items to raise funds. If people are donating items that don't fit a new build, then sell them to others in an attractive resale store. I know that I will go check out the new store before I cast stones at this worthy program. How dare you throw stones at them without signing your name, Anonymous. You are a coward!

    I understand they they spent over $90,000.00 on the new store. That is just so unbelievable that in this current economy, that a non-profit group would spend that much money on a building......instead of spending it on building more homes for the needy. I guess a new shinny store and fancy new offices is better that a safe, warm home for a needy family that currently lives in sub-standard housing. How can the Habitat officials sleep at night knowing that there are families out there in need. Just a few months ago, they said that didn't have enough applications for their program. So I guess instead of building new homes, they got new office / store. Did they get some of the bail-out money from the President??? Unbelievable!!!!!!

    Habitats all over the country are having to find ways to finance their homes and ReStores are enabling them to do so. Every dime made there goes back into the mission of helping build homes. Their priorities remain exactly where they should be. How else will they continue to fund homes in this economy? Bravo, Habitat, for helping yourselves, just as you show your beneficiaries how to do.

    I hope that they don't forget their mission and continue to built families a guality home to live in. For the amount of money that they are spending to open this new store, they could have built two (2) new homes here in Wood County. I think that they already have their priorties backwards. What a shame.
