On our visit to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, which by the way was sporadic, we were pleasantly surprised with the store and how it was organized. Navigating the store was somewhat cumbersome, but much of the products were organized. Many in our social media comments feared the potential of a disorganized mess which seems to plague other cheap discount stores.
In walking around the busy store, we saw many interesting one-off items, collections of one-time sales, large bins once filled with special pillows marked down to $5, household items, decor-ish things, food, books, and tons of toys! Ollie’s is known for capitalizing on the vacant Toys R Us spaces in order to properly position their discounted toys to buyers. Smart.
If you were to take away anything from our visit to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, just know that we didn’t feel like we were in the middle of a rummage sale. In fact, most of the products included more than one of each item. So, many people could buy the same discounted items—like Tide, for example. Discounted Tide, whodathunkit!?
