We have a huge selection of women's dresses in Richmond Hill, 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.

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.

RICHMOND HILL, Ga. (WSAV) — A Richmond Hill family is looking to the community for help after their adoptive son was hospitalized in early July.
19 -year-old, Ethan Kelly, is a child abuse victim. At just 18 months old, his adoptive family tells News 3 he endured severe abuse from his biological mother.
“He was being zip-tied in a crib and in a basement 24/7,” John Kelly, Ethan’s father said. “And when he came to us at that time, forgive me for saying this, but he was eating his diapers to survive.”
Ethan is also a victim of shaken baby syndrome, and the Kelly family says he deals with the effects of it every day. However, they say he has made tremendous improvement since the day they welcomed him to their family.
“He learned to eat again, learn to walk just using one side of his body, went to school…,” Stephanie Kelly, his mother said.
Recently, Ethan’s health took an unexpected turn because of his severe brain damage.
“They said due to his shaken baby that his brain on one side had filled with fluid and then pushed the other part of the brain into the brain stem, causing it to herniate,” Stephanie said.
This led to Ethan getting surgery. John and Stephanie said Ethan is going to need to begin learning basic skills all over again.
“Now he can’t even get himself out of bed in the morning without our assistance,” John said. “It’s hard to start back at square one at 19 when your body is that much bigger.”
Having to stay at home to care for Ethan has put John and Stephanie’s jobs on the line, still uncertain what the future holds for them. Now, the Kelly’s are turning to the community for help.
“We’re limited,” Stephanie said. “We have in total five children and we’re teachers. We’re limited in what we can do for Ethan. We don’t really have the finances to be able to give him everything he needs.”
They told us Ethan and this journey has taught the entire Kelly family the real meaning behind don’t judge a book by its cover. They say you never truly know the full story.
Their story is powerful, and their GoFundMe has additional information about Ethan’s journey.
Linked here is the family’s GoFundMe with a goal of $50,000.

On Thursday morning, roughly 100 people showed up in the rain to welcome SFC Ryan Davis and his family to the neighborhood.
WJCL reported in May, when building had began for the Army Ranger's new home. It's been a long road for the Davis family.
"That’s the hardest part thinking you’re not going to be able to run down the road with your kid anymore, that was probably the heaviest thing to have to burden,” Davis said.
Davis’ life changed forever during his 5th deployment to Afghanistan. He lost three limbs in an explosion, but made it home to his wife Asia, and young son, Knox.
“He tore into the room and he goes, 'Where’s my dad?' and he looked at me and said, ‘Dad, you don’t have any arms or legs, that’s awesome.' And I’m like, what? I knew from that very moment he was going to be a player everywhere he went," Davis said.
After 28 surgeries, his family became the key players in helping his recovery. And on Thursday, his daily life as a disabled veteran also changed forever.
A mortgage-free, fully accessible home gifted to the family from the Gary Sinise Foundation.
“We owe them, they have sacrificed so much, the least we can do is show our gratitude,” said Sarah Hollis, VP of Philanthropy at Gary Sinise Foundation.
The house was specifically designed for the Davis family with extra-wide hallways, Alexa-synched controls, a specialized kitchen and a bathroom.
But for Davis, it brings more than accessibility.
"It’s those moments in the morning when Asia can finally get the well-deserved sleep that she needs at 7 o’clock and Knox is ripping, and I can come out here and safely give him some food, safely give him some pancakes," he said.
Their first night in their new home: Thursday night.
"We are sleeping here tonight," Davis said.
Surrounded by friends and family, to make this house, a home.
“It’s been, really, the resiliency of our story, making it through together, and being here today, happy, somehow, through God, the community, and Gary,” Davis said.
I was both surprised and sorry to learn a few weeks ago of the unexpected closing of the Hardee’s restaurant in Richmond Hill, at the corner of US 17 and Highway 144.

I was both surprised and sorry to learn a few weeks ago of the unexpected closing of the Hardee’s restaurant in Richmond Hill, at the corner of US 17 and Highway 144. I was even more surprised to see that the entire building had been completely demolished, down to the concrete slab,
I well remember when that Hardee’s came to Richmond Hill, some 30 years or so ago. I was glad to see it, and had lunch there often on the weekends. More recently, I often stopped by on my way to work in Savannah to get a biscuit breakfast, usually through the drive-through.
I was born and raised in Savannah, and moved to a rural area of eastern Liberty County, a few miles north of Midway, in January of 1986. The Hill at that time was a much smaller place than it is now, maybe 1/10th its current population. Both US 17 and Hwy. 144 were still two-lane roads; City Hall was what is now the Senior Center, and the Post Office was still in that small red brick building a few doors east.
Shores IGA was the only grocery store in town, and the only gas station was tiny little Harrison’s Gulf, where the Walgreens now sits. Harrison’s had a one-bay tire repair and oil change garage, and still sold live bait and tackle for those who wanted to try their luck fishing.
A few years later, when I was working for the El Cheapo brothers, in the late 1980’s, Harrison’s became the first gas station in the area to have an electronic credit card machine, through Gulf Oil. I coordinated that installation with Linda Snyder, the Gulf Oil Rep who came down from Cleveland to oversee that installation, and others we did in Savannah, after that.
That was a revolution in credit card processing! Not only did a station get instant approval for the sale, if the card presented was good, the funds were posted to the bank account in two days! Before then, paper tickets had to be imprinted and then mailed to Cleveland to be processed, and it took a week before credit showed up in the bank account.
Our company at the time processed something like $70,000 a week in Gulf credit card charges, so accounting for that deposit timing became an important part of my cash-flow management calculations.
Not long after that, the Georgia DOT started to widen US 17, partly to allow for the increased traffic, and partly to avoid interruptions on that stretch of the road north of the Hill, when the Ogeechee River would sometimes flood the roadway, making it impassable.
They first built a pair of new lanes, on a raised roadbed, then shifted traffic to that new roadway; then went back to the original highway, tore it out and raised that roadbed, adding another two lanes, to make it the nice wide road we all enjoy today.
As part of that road widening project, however, the DOT had to take a good chunk of the Harrison’s gas station property, which by then was operated by “Dinky” Miner. When Mark’s lease expired, he moved south a few hundred yards and built the much larger facility that is now known as “Ozzy’s.” Sometime after that, CVS built on the lot north of his new place, and Walgreens eventually built across 144 from CVS, following their new corporate strategy of building across the street from CVS.
When Hardee’s finally built across 17 from CVS, their westside parking lot was unpaved for the longest time. I remember asking the manager, why wasn’t it paved yet? And the answer was that they had to wait until the DOT finished their widening of US 17.
Seems like that took a year or two; I remember it seemed to take forever.
When I worked on Savannah’s west side, I frequently ate lunch at the Hardee’s in Garden City. I thought their hamburgers were better than most, and you could get one with fries and a coke for under $3, another important factor at the time, given the tight state of my budget! When I first moved to Midway, I would go to Hinesville on the weekends, to do laundry, get groceries and lunch at the Hardee’s next to Wal-Mart and the Winn-Dixie. So I was glad to see Hardee’s finally come to Richmond Hill, later on.
I don’t know what is coming for that corner, now that it is vacant. I am glad it’s not another title-pawn place, as has happened with other Hardee’s locations that closed.
A lot has changed in Richmond Hill over the past 30 years! It keeps getting bigger and better. We are lucky to live in such a nice corner of our state.

In line with other cities and towns across coastal Georgia, Richmond Hill City Council approved a resolution at Tuesday’s workshop meeting to declare an economic “disaster” brought upon by imported shrimp.
The rapid influx of imported shrimp – also known as ”shrimp dumping- being sold in the U.S. has led to stiff competition for domestic shrimpers. Unable to compete with lower prices, many local shrimpers are struggling – and some are considering leaving the industry altogether.
Mayor Russ Carpenter expressed his support for the resolution, which was promoted by the Georgia Commercial Fisherman Association.
“All of you who have been here long enough to remember – we actually had a thriving industry here in Richmond Hill with shrimping,” Carpenter said. “It’s certainly not what it used to be but we’d really still like to protect our shrimpers.”
Local shrimper Traci Arnsdorff has witnessed the drastic changes over time, working alongside her husband at Grey Ghost Seafood in Richmond Hill since 2000.
“We made more money in the early nineties than we do now on per-pound of shrimp, because of imports,” Arnsdorff said. “I try to keep my price at a decent price, but we’ve got to overcome our fuel costs and the maintenance costs.”
Arnsdorff stresses that it isn’t a level playing field between family-owned establishments like Grey Ghost and overseas shrimp companies, which is why the emergency resolution is so important.
“Everything we do, comes straight out of our pocket, out of our personal money,” Arnsdorff said.
“We get no help, no subsidies from anywhere. I mean, we’re just asking for a little help.”
Shrimpers in southeast Georgia are now hoping that proclamations like the one in Richmond Hill will draw the attention of Gov. Brian Kemp, so that a statewide resolution can be made to help out the Georgia shrimp industry.
Big business not only cuts into local profits, but also long-standing livelihoods. Many shrimpers in Georgia are wondering if there is even a future for them in the seafood industry.
“I have a 14-year-old. People are like, ‘Are you going to let him go shrimp?’, and I’m like, I don’t think there’s going to be shrimping by the time he’s old enough,” Arnsdorff said.
“They’re pushing us out everyday.”
