The first building you see when you drive into the City of Marysville has been vacant for most of the past four years -but not for much longer.
Habitat for Humanity has agreed to move its Restore outlet for new and used construction materials from its current location across from Ellis Lake.
The old Mervyns building is more than four times larger than Restore's current building. Habitat's Joseph Hale says a better location will allow the organization to focus more on helping people and a little less on selling materials, "There's going be to be offices for family services. So people who have issues -even homeowners that have damaged homes in need of repair-we're going to set that up to where they can come in, fill out paperwork if they qualify based on their income. We'll come out and do projects try to help them out."
The organization will take over the 67,000 square foot building January 9th.
