It is nearly a year later and what used to be a tired, old bingo hall has been completely transformed into a new structure that refreshes the area that surrounds it.
If you remember, the entrance to Metro Bingo was located directly in front, facing I-49. The entrance today has been moved to the side of the building and a cover has been provided for those looking to drop off donations with less of a chance of getting too wet from the rain. The exterior has been renovated to look less like an old brick building and more like a new warehouse. Overall, it’s a much more appealing structure now.
If you’ve never heard of ReStore, it is a “home improvement thrift store”. They sell new and gently used building materials, furniture, and other home goods that were generously donated by area locals. The operation helps fund the work that Lafayette Habitat for Humanity does for the community and it helps keep waste out of landfills.
“This second ReStore location will be a significant contributor to Lafayette Habitat’s capacity to build more homes in partnership with families who are working hard to create a better future for themselves.”
