GREENSBORO, N.C.-Tabletop retailer Replacements is celebrating the company's 30th anniversary today by kicking off construction on a Habitat for Humanity house. Replacements' volunteer crew gathered just after sunrise to start framing the new home, followed by an official celebration event later in the morning.

"I can't think of a better way to celebrate," said founder and CEO Bob Page. "Habitat for Humanity reminds us all that when we can lend a hand, we should. When I think about our last 30 years, years when we worked hard to build something together, the idea of joining a family as they build their home just feels right. We are so excited, because we know this is such a meaningful time for the Siu/Rmah family, as well as for our own."

Page started Replacements in the attic of his home with one part-time assistant in 1981. Three decades later, the company has grown into one of the world's largest retailers of old and new china, crystal, silver and collectibles with more than 10 million customers


"Replacements has long been known for their generous support of our community," said Michelle Schneider, director of development for Habitat For Humanity of Greater Greensboro. "We are thrilled to have them as a new corporate sponsor and know that the He Siu and Doan Rmah family is excited to work alongside the Replacements team to build their new home. We congratulate Replacements on their 30th anniversary and look forward to building a strong partnership over the coming months."
