If you're looking for some home improvement at a reasonable price, look no further than Superior.

The ReStore is celebrating its first birthday and that means 50 percent off everything in the entire store. The ReStore is organized by Habitat for Humanity and sells new, used and re-purposed home goods.

All proceeds benefit the Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity. The ReStore Manager said the first year has been great.

"People are coming in bringing a lot of good donations," Manager Teresa Backes said. "They're happy they have a place to bring this stuff because a lot of it is good, usable stuff and it keeps it out of the landfills."

The sale continues Saturday from 10 to 6 p.m. There's also a silent auction with refurbished items.

The ReStore is always looking for more volunteers.
