A new first-of-its-kind women’s clothing store called “Blue” is now open in Washington Court House. Featuring trendy and many name-brand fashions for women, it’s the first of its kind in the lineup of stores in the eight-county territory of Goodwill Industries of South Central Ohio.

The new store is located at 1377 Leesburg Ave., across from the entrance to the Fayette County Fairgrounds and in front of Walmart on Leesburg Avenue.

Called “Blue: Second-hand Fashions for Her,” the store is a “unique opportunity to dedicate a store directly for our female shoppers. Blue is a store that will focus on delivering the latest in ladies’ fashion, at prices everyone can afford,” said Jarrod DePugh, Goodwill’s Director of Retail Operations.

Goodwill will officially commemorate “Blue’s” opening with a grand opening celebration on Monday at 10 a.m. with refreshments and contests for shoppers to participate in.

“Blue” will feature a selection of clothing by name brand designers, stocked as frequently as possible, as well as hand-picked outfits, accessories and shoes. It also will provide an intimate shopping experience, with a much different atmosphere than what is normally found in a thrift store.

“Blue” hours are 10-6 Monday through Saturday.

The new concept store was made possible when Goodwill re-opened its former, larger store on Columbus Street in April. Donations for Goodwill will continue to be received at the Columbus Street store while “Blue” will not be handling donations.

Goodwill Industries of South Central Ohio is a non-profit organization that exists for one purpose: to eliminate barriers to opportunity and help people in need reach their full potential through learning and the power of work. Its programs provide services in Pike, Ross, Pickaway, Fayette, Jackson, Vinton, Hocking and Athens counties.
