Many locals were surprised when a retail chain made a bold – and large – announcement on its Facebook page last week.

Ohio Thrift Stores announced “Here We Grow Again!!! MANSFIELD COMING SOON!!” No details were shared.

According to its website, “Ohio Thrift is a for-profit organization that has been serving Central Ohio since the late ’80s. Our dedication to providing quality goods and services has enabled us to be a leader in our industry.

Ohio Thrift obtains its merchandise from non-profit organizations, brokers, liquidations, and buy-outs. We also buy directly from manufacturers, which allows us to offer the best prices and discounts to the public.”

A typical Ohio Thrift Store features new and used clothes and shoes, as well as household goods, jewelry, electronics and appliances, crafts, toys, sporting goods, books and music, and a great deal more.

Currently, the closest Ohio Thrift Store location is in Westerville, so this would be the chain’s first foray north of I-270.

Several commenters volunteered ideas or predictions on where the store would locate. Suggestions included the Dollar General Market Place location in the old West Park Shopping Center, Johnny Appleseed Shopping Center, and the old Park Avenue West Family Dollar. The post and comments can be read here.
