ReSOURCE Announces Move to Williston & Improvements to Storefront in Burlington

The community nonprofit will keep its reuse and training facilities at 339 Pine Street in Burlington open and expand it to include a household goods department, additional parking,
and building upgrades


Benefits include increased retail and warehouse space, strengthening current programs and services while developing new ones, and an improved goods donation experience


ReSOURCE, a multi-faceted organization that creates a marketplace for reuse with proceeds funding new opportunities to the under-skilled and long-term unemployed and providing poverty relief, is pleased to announce its home base is moving from its long-time 266 Pine Street location to a larger facility in Williston’s Taft Corners. The new 36,506 square foot space at 329 Harvest Lane allows ReSOURCE to secure its own sustainability by housing its reuse store, administrative offices, workforce development programs, and appliance repair and computer departments, under one roof.


“We’ve spent two years looking for a home that will help us achieve our current and future goals,” said ReSOURCE Executive Director Tom Longstreth. “ReSOURCE has a mission to empower individuals and strengthen Vermont communities through job training, poverty relief, and environmental stewardship. The Harvest Lane location meets our requirements to do just that. It is centrally located so we can provide our services throughout the region and still be part of the Burlington community with our 339 Pine Street location.”


While the community nonprofit had long-ago outgrown its present location, the Harvest Lane site streamlines reuse donor access with a covered donation bay, making it easier and more inviting for community members to support reuse by dropping off their gently used goods in a weather-protected area. Increased warehouse storage capacity for donations provides a greater selection and increased availability of items at all four ReSOURCE store locations in Burlington, Barre, Hyde Park, and now Taft Corners, Williston, and will prevent more than a thousand tons of reusable goods from ending up in the landfill each year.


The building’s interior also boasts an expanded retail space; more meeting rooms; larger classrooms for workforce training programs; and increased office and production workspaces. These efficient multi-use spaces will provide more mobility and flexibility to student workstations and increase efficiencies between programs. Through these increased amenities, ReSOURCE expects its annual training program enrollment to increase from 275 to more than 500 students and trainees within five years.
