Replacements, Ltd. Marks 30th Anniversary by Building Habitat for Humanity House
GREENSBORO, N.C., February 1, 2011 – Replacements, Ltd. announces plans today to mark the company's upcoming 30th anniversary by partnering with a family to build a Habitat for Humanity house. The world's largest retailer of old and new china, crystal, silver and collectibles is known for its strong community involvement and plans for Replacements' entire staff to participate in the three-month project.
"When I was growing up, my father always taught me to share what little we had with our neighbors and I made that lesson one of our guiding values when I started Replacements in my attic three decades ago," says Founder and CEO Bob Page. "I can't think of a more appropriate way to celebrate our 30-year milestone than living out those values of sharing our success and service to others. I really think this experience will bring all of us here closer as individuals and make us stronger as a company."
The company plans to kick off this project by breaking ground on the actual date of Replacements' 30th anniversary, Thursday March 17, 2011. Additional details on the groundbreaking celebration will be available in early March.
