COME PICK YOUR “LUCKY DUCK” AT THE MORRIS HABITAT RESTORE FOR BIG SAVINGS

Friday, June 20, 2014 • 3:10pm

The savings will be just ducky!  This year will mark the 4rd Annual Lucky Duck Sales Event at the Morris Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  On Saturday, July 19 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. customers at the non-profit ReStore will be able to pick a rubber duck from their pond for additional surprise savings!  The ReStore sells new and gently used furniture, household items, appliances, building materials, rugs, art work and pictures, plumbing supplies, hardware, electrical supplies and much more at prices far below retail.  Picking the right duck could provide an additional 10-50% savings over the regularly low prices. The money raised goes towards building safe and affordable housing.  To date the ReStore has built  11 homes and kept nearly 3700  tons of material out of our landfills.

In addition to the Lucky Duck savings, there will be raffles throughout the day (noon and 2pm for a $50 ReStore certificate and 4pm for ReStore $100 certificate.)  Besides that, ALL purchases over $10 will receive a secret scratch off savings card for a future purchase. These have been very popular in the past so come in to try your luck!

The Lucky Duck Sales Events are always fun and a great family day.  There will be free hot dogs, popcorn, live music and a few other surprises.  The ReStore is located on South Salem Street off Route 10 in Randolph, across from the K-Mart Shopping Center.
