Goodwill to Open Upscale Boutique in Lexington
September 20, 2023
A new specialty retail store offering an upscale boutique-style thrift shopping experience will soon open in Lexington this fall.
Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina (GIUMSC) recently announced the opening of its second specialty retail store, Auten’s Loft, at 4708 Sunset Boulevard Sept. 20 at 10 a.m.
Auten’s Loft is named in memory of GIUMSC founder Lloyd Auten and will offer affordable designer and name-brand women’s and men’s clothing, jewelry, shoes, accessories, and select home décor in a refined, stylish setting. Products, taken entirely from donations, are tailored to those looking for trendy, fashionable, and designer apparel and furnishings.
According to GIUMSC, the original Auten’s Loft opened in Chapin in 2022 and has become a go-to shopping experience for high-end thrifters across the region.
“Boutique-style thrift shopping provides a reimagined retail experience for our customers. We hope to bring joy to our shoppers while furthering the cycle of goodwill for jobseekers who come to us for career help, training, education services, and more,” said GIUMSC President/CEO Pat Michaels. “When you shop at Goodwill, you never know what deal or treasure you’ll find, but you’ll always know every purchase is making a positive impact for someone in your community looking for a sustainable life.”
Auten’s Loft on Sunset will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., the same hours as the Chapin location.
