After enjoying tremendous success in its original Stapleton location, Rare Finds Warehouse, hand-picked and custom-built home furnishings from around the world owners found their customer base consisted of many from the south suburbs. After an extensive search, they found the perfect location – a warehouse for their unique “warehouse” in Highlands Ranch. The word community was mentioned many times during the owners’ opening remarks at the official Grand Opening last week. And, community is what it’s all about. The owners became acquainted with the Home Builders Foundation (HBF) when both participated in the Shark Tank event presented by South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce. It was a match. A portion of sales on Friday and Saturday went to the nonprofit whose mission is to build independence, provide opportunities and elevate lives for individuals and families with disabilities in our community. On hand was a recipient Zoe Grisez whose mom, Lorraine explained that the family sold its home in Colorado Springs to make Zoe’s dream come true. She is a freshman at DU majoring in English and creative writing. Thanks to HBF, her apartment was refurbished to accommodate her needs and the family can rest assured she is safe.
