Everything from easy chairs to business attire will be on sale beginning today (Thursday, May 29) at the new Goodwill Columbus retail outlet in Dublin.

Occupying 9,300 square feet at 6665 Sawmill Road at the entrance of the Dublin Village Center, Goodwill's fourth retail store in central Ohio boasts rows of inexpensive merchandise.

Buy a suit for $12.99, Anne Klein or Ralph Lauren jeans for $4 and Tommy Hilfiger polos for $3.

"Truly, anyone can come in here and find anything they're looking for," said Vivian Williams, director of retail operations for the nonprofit agency.

That includes electronic equipment, furniture and jewelry. The store is open daily and accepts donations during regular business hours. It does not sell or accept large appliances, computers and mattresses, Williams said.

"We're very excited about being in Dublin," she said. "We're expecting a lot of high-quality donations."

One feature of the store is the Career Closet, which provides women with clothing for the workplace. Those who qualify can receive up to two free outfits. Those customers must obtain referral from a social-service agency in central Ohio. The Career Closet also is for other women looking for gently used clothes at reasonable prices.

The four local stores raise more than $3-million annually for Goodwill Columbus, which puts the money into local programs and services, Williams said.

Last week, workers were feverishly getting the store ready for its opening, attaching fixtures to the walls and assembling clothing racks. Brian Hammen, properties manager for Goodwill, said it takes six to eight weeks to prepare a store.

Dublin Mayor Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher said she's pleased Goodwill has chosen the city for its newest store.

"I think it's fair to say that the economic conditions have affected all people," she said. "And the Dublin community and surrounding community are interested in participating in both ways for the store -- one is making donations to the store and the other may be purchasing from the store.

"So we're able to get help and give help. Really, it is because of the location Goodwill has chosen that it will be able to service a big northwest region."
