Have you been to our newest location yet? ReUse has expanded in Triphammer Marketplace with ReUse Community Hardware (2255 N. Triphammer Road), right next door to our existing Triphammer ReUse Center.
With an expanded books selection, you can now easily find unusual, high-quality, and even limited edition books in this dedicated section. All purchases support ReUse’s community efforts, including the ReUse Materials Access Program, and keeps good items out of the waste stream.
First opened in May, ReUse Community Hardware sells quality hardware, tools, building and gardening supplies of the recently closed Ace Hardware at a progressive discount. Reuse departments have also been steadily growing since opening, with furniture, books and media now available at the space.
“ReUse Community Hardware is so much more than hardware,” says Lee C., Assistant Manager. “We’re proud to announce the expansion of our book department and the opening of our ‘Bonkers’ Boutique Book section!”
“My favorite part of working in books is putting together the book displays,” says ReUse Apprentice Mary J. “Once a customer snagged books off a display before we could even finish it!”
This newly expanded department was made possible in partnership with Triphammer Development, the Ithaca Urban Renewal Agency, Tompkins County’s Summer Youth Employment Program, and more. See more of ReUse’s partners at https://ithacareuse.org/partners/.
