About Pioneer Restore

Pioneer Restore opened with just online sales in 2014. The store serves to sell University owned items that are considered "surplus" or items that are no longer needed by the University. The Store is self-sufficient, meaning it pays for itself through sales. All Pioneer Restore operations must comply with the Wisconsin Department of Administration Procurement Manual, PRO-F 1-3. Pioneer Restore is in the process of developing localized policy and procedures.

UW-Platteville Departments- Buy from Restore!

Pioneer Restore exists to properly dispose of items no longer needed by the University. What one department no longer needs, may be just what another is looking for. Departments are welcome to shop at Restore during normal store hours (with the exception of furniture and IT purchases - see our draft policy page for more information about these items).

Items that may still have use to the University and are of "higher value" (items valued at approximately $50 or more) are available for departmental (not personal) purchase before they are offered to the public. Pioneer Restore will list these items as available on Friday's by 8 a.m. for one week before they are offered to the public.


No New Items this week, Please keep checking back
