Great ReStore News!

April 9, 2014 Posted by Yard Guy

Just dropped by Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore on South Second Street in downtown San Jose, and saw a notice that a new store is opening in San Jose on May 31 at 1608 Las Plumas. The site looks to be the old City Corp Yard. That site had lots of open space, so perhaps there will be an outdoor yard for larger building items. The last time I was there was to take a look at the roof trusses of the old YWCA building. ┬áThe Julia Morgan designed YWCA was demolished during the early days of Redevelopment in downtown San Jose, but they City had salvaged the trusses and left them at the Las Plumas Corp Yard.

I’ll drop by soon and take some photos to see what’s going on.
