Shutdown Shopping

Get a bigger bang for your buck!

Are you stuck at home during the shutdown… and are you using the time to get caught up on home improvement projects? Whether you’re trying a DIY repair, reorganizing your basement, or renovating the bathroom, your money will stretch further when you get your supplies at Community Forklift.

We’re located just minutes from DC, and we know many of our Forklift Fans are dedicated federal employees. To demonstrate our support and appreciation for those who provide the day-to-day delivery of government services, Community Forklift is giving a 10% storewide discount to any federal employee (with a valid ID) for the duration of the shutdown. Visit us for a free cup of coffee, the chance to donate materials from a year end clean-out, and shop for a home improvement project.

(Please note:  This discount does not apply to items sold online, items from our consignment partners, or Amazon Paint.)

And if you include our materials in your #ShutdownStories projects on social media, please tag Community Forklift!  If you are making the best of this difficult time, we’d love to see what you create.

This discount is *in addition* to our in-store sales!

In January 2019, you can also save: 25% on bathroom fixtures & 25% on lighting!


Every dollar spent in our warehouse helps us lift up local communities through reuse.  Community Forklift turns the construction waste stream into a resource stream for communities in the DC region – by keeping perfectly good items out of the landfill, preserving historic materials, providing low-cost building supplies, and creating local green jobs.
