Austin Creative Reuse Will Move to Larger Location March 4th, 2020
  • Austin Creative Reuse, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit, is Austin’s most unique destination for conservation, creativity and community building
  • The new Austin Creative Reuse Center will be over four times larger than its current retail space.

Austin, TX – On March 4, 2020, Austin Creative Reuse (ACR) will open the doors on a new, significantly larger space located at 2005 Wheless Lane, just north of the Mueller development. Fans of the popular reuse organization are thrilled to see it grow into more space for donations, shopping, volunteering, community activities, and educational programming.

ACR is a thriving nonprofit organization with a strong conservation mission, focusing on fostering reuse through creativity, education and community building. Hundreds of volunteers contribute thousands of hours to advance that mission every year.   

“Since opening our doors in September of 2015, Austin has embraced creative reuse in every way,” says Board President Carole LeClair. “We were bursting at the seams in our original location and can now offer a much better space to grow our reuse community.  We couldn’t be more excited for this move, and hope it brings creative reuse to a far larger audience across all of Central Texas.” 

“This move would not be possible without the dedicated volunteers, board, and staff who give generously of their time to make the vision of ACR a reality – and the hundreds of people who visit us every day to shop and donate,” adds Interim Executive Director Cory Skuldt. We can’t wait to offer them expanded programming, a better volunteer experience, and another big step towards Austin’s zero-waste goal.”
