In 2007, Habitat for Humanity of South Central Minnesota opened the doors of the ReStore in an effort to sell donated home improvement materials to the public as a fundraising program. The 2007 building was constructed based on a conservative budget, and in just five short years, the ReStore had outgrown its space. APX Construction began work April 6, 2016 on the new 16,000 sq. ft. Habitat ReStore located on Bassett Drive in Mankato across from the existing building.
