The Shires ReSale Store is a store owned and operated by Bennington County Habitat for Humanity.  The store accepts and sells donations of new and gently used furniture, building supplies, appliances, tools, housewares, and home improvement products.   The Store has a box truck in order to pickup donated items. Shoppers have access to used and new goods throughout the year at a fraction of retail prices. Everyone benefits from items that are kept out of the land fill.


The Shires ReSale Store is located at 51 Memorial Ave (formerly Evans' and the Manchester Journal office).  It is across from Manchester Elementary Middle School and behind the Maplefields/Mobil Station.
