For years, the Fort Wayne chapter of Habitat for Humanity has urged residents to use recycled building materials and home decor by patronizing its ReStore.

Now the recently expanded agency’s ReStore is undertaking its own recycling project – repurposing a tract of land along Lima Road that once held a Golden Corral restaurant into an expanded retail outlet.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne on Tuesday ceremonially broke ground for its new ReStore at the site at 4747 Lima Road.

The planned 27,500-square-foot building will nearly double the space of the existing ReStore’s 15,400-square-foot facility at 3837 N. Wells St., officials said.



Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne is a tax-exempt 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.
