Diamonds are pretty and all, but honestly? Dresses are a girl's best friend. Dresses are fun, comfortable, and versatile. At Copper Penny, they're also fashionable and cute. We have a huge selection of women's dresses in Garden City, GA, from stylistic sheath dresses to drop-waist styles that will make your girlfriends jealous.
These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.Shop Now
Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.Shop Now
A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.Shop Now
Once you know the kind of waist that fits your body type, it's time to find your shape. A few of our most popular dress shapes include:
Unless you're feeling extra sassy, chances are you're wearing a top at this very moment. Tops are garments that cover the top half of your body. At Copper Penny, we have an endless selection of tops in a wide range of styles - from basic tees to blouses and everything in between. If you're looking for the highest quality women's tops in Garden City, GA, you just hit the jackpot!
With that said, finding the right top for the right occasion is easier said than done. However, at Copper Penny, we make finding the right top fun. Whether you're looking for a top that makes a statement or you need a classic button-down for a subdued style, we've got your back. We only carry the most popular tops from the best brands and designers around the world.
Sometimes called broadcloth tops, poplins have classic characteristics and are often woven with an over/under weave. This kind of weave gives more substance to your top while also giving you room to breathe. Poplin shirts are typically soft and smooth, and are great for everyday business attire, some formal occasions, and for certain ceremonies. Sweet and feminine, our Bruna poplin eyelet bib top features ruffles at the sleeves and an eyelet lace yoke at the front. Pair your poplin with your favorite pair of shorts or jeans for a contemporary, relaxed look.Shop Now
Great for wearing solo or layered over a camisole or tank top, wrap tops are lightweight, versatile, and great for many different occasions. Wrap tops go well with jeans, maxi dresses, and high-waisted jeans or trousers. Our V-Neck Wrap SLV Top by Jayden is uber-popular at Copper Penny and the perfect choice for dressing down or dressing up. The choice is yours!Shop Now
For a dose of feminine fashion, be sure you add an off-the-shoulder top to your everyday wardrobe. A casual, sexy choice, off-the-shoulder tops have unique necklines that cut across your upper arms and chest, leaving your shoulders bare. The result is a flirty flash of skin, which elongates your neck and gives a relaxed, "daytime casual" look. Our Nola off-the-shoulder top pairs perfectly with shorts or even a flowy skirt and is hand-woven in Spain using Jacquard fabric.Shop Now
Who doesn't love a good tank top?! Tank tops are lightweight, versatile, and equally great for lounging in the yard or running errands on weekends. Tank tops lend an air of simplicity to your outfit and can be styled in endless ways. Take our Velvet Heart Victory Tank, for instance. This tank is a refreshing update on our classic sleeveless tank top, complete with fray details and a scoop neck. Throw in the fact that it's machine washable, and you have a wardrobe winner.Shop Now
When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The layers to solving the homeless crisis in our community run deep but one critical piece to the puzzle is emergency housing and shelters where the homeless can have a safe place to rest their heads.
Mercy Ministries recently shut down and Garden City Rescue Mission is now in danger of closing their doors too.
The rescue mission rescues about 400 men from the streets every year. Right now, they house about 60 men.
If they can’t come up with half a million dollars soon, we’ll see all of those they help back on the street.
Some of the men have stayed with the rescue mission for months and others years.
“I kept coming back and forth down this road right here and I kept hearing the music,” said Chester Hope, who stays at the rescue mission.
“My life is entirely different all because I chose to come here,” said Mitchell Morris, who stays at the rescue mission.
“I don’t have a lot of everything now, but I have something and that’s the Garden City Rescue,” said Curtis Hunter, who stays at the rescue mission.
It’s a place open to many yet on the verge of having its doors shut forever.
“The original owner went to heaven some years ago and now the family has decided to liquidate the property,” said Executive Director Patrick Feistel. “So our long-term lease has been shortened.”
There is a price tag of $500,000 attached to stay.
“If I had all the money in the world, I would pay for it,” said volunteer Jeanette Hernandez.
Any dollar or penny will help the rescue mission.
“We need to try to do our best to save our rescue. I don’t say ‘the rescue’ because it’s our rescue mission,” said Hernandez.
“We’re at the doorstep of eternity for a lot of people in their life,” said Feistel.
Each life and story is just as different as each face.
“Eight years ago, I was a drug addict,” said Morris. “I was a needle junkie.”
“I was a full blown alcoholic,” said Hunter. “I haven’t had a drink in seven months, thanks to this place.”
“I thought I was just gonna come here and lay down, eat a meal but no, that didn’t happen,” said Hope. “It happened but I got a little more than that.”
It is more than one can imagine.
“There are some men right now that come through here and if they didn’t have this place and was out there on the streets, they wouldn’t be alive,” said Feistel.
Now the rescue mission is fighting for its own life.
“The city doesn’t need less shelters and less places where people are being introduced off the streets,” said Feistel.
The rescue mission instead wants to bring folks in for a chance at life.
To donate to Garden City Rescue Mission, visit their website.
On Sunday, Victory Baptist Church is hosting a silent auction starting at 1 p.m.
On September 2, Hernandez is hosting a 5k run starting at 8 a.m. at Mill Village Trailhead. To learn more and register, visit here.
On September 14, the rescue mission is hosting a telethon where you can call and help raise money. News 12 will update you on more details as we continue to follow.

On Tuesday, June 13, 2023, a District 8 Town Hall was held at Brock Elementary School for the purpose of sharing information on construction of the new K-12 facility in Garden City that will house Gould Elementary, Mercer Middle, and Groves High School on one campus. For those unable to attend the meeting, please find the presentation available in both English and Spanish below.
Questions from the June 13th District 8 Town Hall Meeting
Q1. Is there a separation between the elementary, middle, and high school students during lunch?
Yes, there will be a partition to separate the high school and elementary/middle school sides of the cafeteria. This partition is a permanent separation. There is a large window on the partition (pictured below) that will allow light to come through, however, students will not be able to see the other side of the cafeteria through the window. There are two controlled access doors on the partition as well, however, students will NOT be able to go through these doors.
Like many of our other sites, the multicampus will have perimeter fencing all the way around the building and controlled access exterior doors. Doors in areas that separate the high school from the elementary and middle school will also have controlled access to prevent students from crossing over.
Q3. How will the district handle transportation?
We cannot answer this question at this time. More details will be provided as we approach the completion of the building. Currently all students who live a mile and a half or more from their zoned school are offered school bus transportation.
Q4. When will the school be open?
We cannot answer this question at this time. More details will be provided as we approach the completion of the building.
Q5. Will the school uniform colors change?
School uniform colors are at the discretion of each individual school. At this time, there is not expected to be a change in uniform for Gould, Mercer, or Groves. Each school is expected to maintain their own identity.
Q6. What will the site be named?
At the July 2023 meeting of the Board of Education, Board members approved naming the site Gould/Mercer/Groves Multicampus, or G/M/G for short.
Q7. What spaces will be shared between grades?
Elementary and middle school students will share their side of the building and operate similarly to our K-8 schools. Elementary and middle school students will share a cafetorium, gym, and learning commons. High school students will be completely separated from elementary and middle school students as they will also have their own cafeteria, gym, and learning commons. The only space that will be shared by all three schools is the auditorium.
Q8. Has this K-12 model been tested in other districts?
Yes, our district looked at various schools across the nation that operate a K-12 model. A list of those we looked at includes:
|Jenkins County Schools||https://www.jchs.com/||Millen, GA|
|Presidio School||Tucson, AZ|
|Deer Trail School Elementary School & Deer Trail Junior-Senior High School||Denver, CO|
|Laura Irwin Elementary School & Riverside Middle/High School||Basin, WY|
|Burlington Schools K-12||Burlington, WY|
|Pinecrest Academy Sloan Canyon||Henderson, NV|
|Hillsdale Local School District||Jeromesville, OH|
|Lowellville Local School District||Lowellville, OH|
We also currently have many schools with grades K-12 in close proximity to each other. Examples of this concept are Beach-DeRenne-Hodge, and Islands-Coastal-Marshpoint.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – A family in Garden City is asking for the community’s help after they lost everything in a Valentine’s Day house fire.
Kelli Solomon spoke with WSAV NOW along with her daughter, Alexis McGill, about the impact of the fire on the life of their family.
“My four-year-old son got hurt real bad- he sustained second and third-degree burns,” Solomon said.
Solomon is having to take her son, Max, to Augusta up to twice a week to receive treatment for his burns. She said he doesn’t understand why he got hurt in a fire that destroyed their home.
“He goes around asking everyone ‘Why you let the fire hurt me?'” Solomon explained. “It breaks my heart when he complains of hurting and it’s not much I can do.”
Meanwhile, McGill said that she lost all of her art supplies and electronics that had the books that she had been writing on them.
“I started drawing around fourth grade and now I’m in eighth and all that progress is just gone now,” she explained. “I had an iPad that had all of my art stuff on it and that also got burned in the fire.”
All of her notebooks with the information for her four different books? Gone.
“Right now we are displaced- we’re sleeping on my in-law’s sofa,” Solomon said. For a family of six, she said that space is tight. “We’re just trying to take it one day at a time.”
“Trying to find a place to stay, that’s our most important thing right now,” she explained.
Struggling to find somewhere that’s decently priced is difficult in the area, but Solomon said it’s even harder because her family had just recently lost their restaurant, Baja Tacos before the fire. Now, without a place to live, Solomon cannot continue working from home like she was prior to the fire.
“It’s hard right now,” she said.
She said that her family needs a range of material items from household goods and toiletries to school supplies and clothing. The family also has a GoFundMe set up for raising money so that she can transport her son to get treatment for his burns.
