Individuals and families. Anyone is welcome to shop at the Building Materials Resource Center. Low- and moderate-income individuals and families receive a significant discount on our already low prices. Just bring in proof of your income (a copy of your most recent tax return is best) and start shopping. There is a $10 yearly membership fee. To find out if you qualify, click on Income Guidelines.

Nonprofits. Nonprofit groups may also shop at the BMRC. To qualify for the discount, just bring in a copy of your organization’s IRS Determination Letter. Tax-exempt organizations must also provide us with the Massachusetts state ST-2 and ST-5 forms. As with individuals and families, there is a $10 yearly membership fee.


The BMRC operates much like a home supply store. Donated materials are delivered to our 6,000 square foot Roxbury store, arranged in the aisles and on the floor, and made available for sale to all our shoppers.
