One More Time opened in September of 1975 in a small storefront on Grandview Avenue. Former owner, Kate Holmes, moved the shop to its current location in 1985. Shortly after the move, Chris Cowman Swanson (pictured above) was hired for just a summer job (ha!). Over the years, Chris learned the ins and outs of running a consignment business and eventually purchased the store in January of 1996. Since that time, One More Time has grown leaps and bounds by tripling the selling space, adding another store and expanded the customer base along with sales. In March of 2004, Chris made the decision to open One More Time ETC, the furniture store, just two blocks west of the clothing store. With a firm belief in helping others, both stores work closely with the community by donating unwanted items to various charities around the city.
OUR DEDICATION TO OUR COMMUNITY:
To help protect the environment and support organizations, the One More Time Family of Stores promotes a SAVE-A-BAG Program. When you opt to not take a bag for purchases (or bring one of your own), you will be given a token. You can then support one of three listed charity organizations by dropping that token into their designated ballot box by the counter. For every token received, we donate ten cents to the charity you've chosen.
Once every September, the One More Time Family of Stores has a charity sale benefiting Nationwide Children's Hospital here in Columbus, OH. Formerly called The Rummage Sale, but now known as the One More Time Charity Sale, this event is held flea-market style on the front yard of the the One More Time ETC furniture store. Items for sale are received by donation from our generous consignors. Since we started this sale in 1995, the One More Time family has donated over $80,000!
