Habitat Store On The Way

Harrison County Habitat for Humanity plans to open a retail store in Gulfport. Project manager Betty Baker says the ReStore will sell discounted building materials and generate money for the organization.

A ReStore has been open in Jackson for five years. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit Christian group that builds homes for the needy. Each family receiving a home is required to perform some construction work.

They also make interest-free mortgage payments, with that money going to build other Habitat homes.
