Sherry C. Wetherington opened the doors of Only Options for business in 1983. With jewelry and handbags being the focus early on, Sherry soon realized there was an unmet need for a specialty clothing store in Valdosta. Only Options grew quickly and expanded from a 750 square foot store downtown to the 5500 square feet we have today. In 2014, after working as the store manager and buyer for almost five years, Devan Martin and her husband Justin Martin purchased Only Options from Sherry.
Lovingly coined “OO,” we strive to be Valdosta's staple clothing and gift store, serving men and women of all ages.
Only Options later expanded its men's section into a true men's store. R.L. Martin & Co. is the men's department inside Only Options. R. L. Martin is a nod to Justin's father who had a long-standing career as a buyer for Belk Hudson before he passed away returning from a buying trip. We hope to continue the legacy of the gentleman he was.
We attribute our success to the relationships we build with our customers and with the companies we work with, as well as a keen eye for quality fashion pieces. It's an honor for us to serve the community of Valdosta.
