In the meantime a volunteer fair is being held Feb. 1 to 3 at the location from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

There are paid positions that are also being hired for including manager, warehouse staff and cashiers.

Everything is donated and money raised at the store is used in local Habitat for Humanity chapters to build homes for families in need of decent affordable housing.
