MICHIGAN CITY | People will soon have an opportunity to buy kitchen countertops and other household supplies at a major discount.

LaPorte County Habitat for Humanity on July 1 is opening a "Re-store" at 10th and Huron streets on Michigan City's west side.

LCHH executive director Debra Trapikas said the almost 10,000-square-foot building will contain mostly donated items offered at a price 50 to 75 percent less than new items at a traditional hardware or home supply store.

There will also be donated new items offered in the store, such as carpeting and ceramic tile.

''It will truly be a regular store,'' said Trapikas.

Proceeds from the Re-store will help fund Habitat for Humanity's work in building new homes for financially eligible families who are allowed to buy them with a no-interest loan.

A Habitat home is under construction on Worden Street in LaPorte.

The local Habitat unit has built 48 homes in LaPorte County since the organization was formed nearly 30 years ago, Trapikas said.
