ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Habitat for Humanity's restore in Albany is moving locations.

The Restore store was originally located on North Slappey Boulevard but they will be moving into the old Harley Davidson Building on Old Dawson Road next to Austin's Fire Grill. 

The new location is three times the size of the North Slappey building.  

Executive Director Scooter Courtney said with the larger showroom they will be able to take more donations and house more items for sale. 

"The Restore is to fund an affiliate of Flint River Habitat for Humanity and those funds go directly back into our community to provide simple decent affordable housing to those in need," said Courtney.

The Restore store hopes to be up and running in the next two weeks. 

The store is open to the public and will have the same store hours as the last store Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
