Ellrod, 48, and her husband, Heinz, spent years perfecting Godfry's as an exclusive men's clothier before expanding the Columbus institution to include women's wear, too. After years in Upper Arlington and then Worthington, the couple-along with their shop dog, Dolce-moved their store to spacious new digs in the outdoor area at Polaris Fashion Place. They pride themselves on luxurious customer service-and their tailor even works on site.
