Fosters Expands Thrift Store to Racine, WI

Fosters reStore is expanding into Racine, WI mid-August 2018.  We will occupy approximately 17,000 square feet of the former Lathrop Furniture location at 2000 Lathrop Avenue.  The retail showroom initially will consist of 6,000 sq/ft of the first floor and will expand into the 2nd floor of approx. 9,000 sq/ft.  We will have a 2,000 sq/ft sorting facility built into this location.

We’re excited to expand and help foster children and others in the Racine, WI area.  But, always remember, our store benefits are open to any licensed foster parent regardless of location.  And our stores are open to the public to shop.

We’re redefining how you look at a thrift store.  Open to the public, with all profits benefiting educational programs for foster children and the less fortunate, you will find a clean and well-organized store, along with a friendly and helpful staff.

The Racine location will also carry new furniture, beds and mattresses, carrying on the long standing tradition at this location.

What we will accept for donations?  This question is the most common that we get regarding the new Racine location.  We will now be accepting all household items, including, but not limited to, small furniture (that you can carry in)(no couches or large furniture without prior arrangements), kitchen items, lamps, baby items like strollers, pack-n-play’s, play items, and other small kid stuff.  When donating toys, they must have all the pieces and be like-new condition and clean.

If you have any questions about what you can donate, where and when, please either email us at or call the store at 262-333-8414.

More information will be released as to the final operating hours and opening date.  Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook.
