If your wallet is anything like mine, it’s feeling the pain of summer vacations and back to school shopping. Can you relate? And if your stress-o-meter is anything like mine, you’re desperately wanting a little bit of retail therapy.
May I introduce you to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Store?
Pause. Now before I go any further, let me pause to say that Ollie’s is opening a brand new store, TODAY (8/8/18) in Eustis (address at the bottom of this post), and NASCAR Champion Kevin Harvick will be there for the store Grand Opening. You may want to grab your kids and go NOW! Beginning at 7:30 a.m., 250 tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis (limit one per person). At 10 a.m., ticket holders will be able to meet and have their photo taken with Harvick, as well as have him autograph one piece of their own memorabilia.
If you aren’t a NASCAR fan, but you are a bargain hunter, let me tickle your ears with some of my favorite Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Store finds. Famous for its signature catch-phrase Good Stuff Cheap, Ollie’s has a huge variety of famous brand-name merchandise in every department – food, books, housewares, toys, electronics, domestics, clothing, furniture, health and beauty, flooring, seasonal items and so much more – at up to 70% off the fancy stores’ prices.
My favorite story to tell about Ollie’s is a recent book purchase. Prior to checking out Ollie’s, I stopped by a large chain book store. I found a book and fell in love with it, but I didn’t love the price. It was $17 dollars. Ouch! I put it back on the shelf, hoping to find it cheaper on Amazon. Later that day I was shopping at Ollie’s… and low-and-behold, THERE WAS MY BOOK. And guess how much it was??? $3.99. YUP! I did a happy dance right there in the store. (And bought it, obviously!)
I am blown away by their book selection. Kids, adult, cooking, DIY, Bibles, coloring books, gardening, fiction, non-fiction, you name it! And the prices are ridiculously cheap!
Housewares and Furniture
I wish I had a bigger car. I literally filled my car with mirrors, pillows, rugs, cutting boards and cute serving bowls. The average price was $3-5 for each of my finds. Seriously, if you know me, I may have just purchased your birthday present. Just sayin’.
The aisles are full of the latest toys and games. So not only can you find something fun for yourself, but the kids will walk away happy little people, too!
Cleaning Supplies and Everyday Necessities
And again, I can’t gush enough over the savings you get at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet! Some items are a little cheaper than your regular shopping store, and some are A LOT cheaper! Either way, be prepared to SAVE!
