Columbus Stuff is a group of volunteer parents.
We have two store locations (depending on the season): during the late Spring, Summer and Fall times, we are located outside by the concession stand at the stadium. For Winter time, we have an indoor store located at the juncture of the Arts hallway and the back hallway into the gymnasium. We accept cash, check and credit/debit cards for purchases. We have men's, women's, school approved and kids apparel, as well as, accessories galore! Purchasing Columbus Stuff is a great way to support the Sailors and show your Sailor Pride.
