Howdy folks, welcome to another edition of Retail News, and this week we have some good news! Ollie’s Bargain Outlet was able to hold their scheduled grand opening on Wednesday, September 15th, despite Hurricane Nicholas making landfall just a day before. It seems that so far Ollie’s is a hit! Fellow retail watcher, Anonymous in Houston, noted that nearly 50 photos has been posted on Google Reviews within hours of the grand opening. I had a chance to visit this long awaited Houston branch this previous weekend and found no lack of customers, however it seems that this is a very low-key opening for Ollie’s. While there were photographers, and the “Ollie Costume” present at least on opening day, they were gone by Saturday. What the store lacked in celebration, it more than made up for in well stocked deals, and organization. If you had any remaining doubt in your mind about checking out Ollie’s since they’ve arrived in Houston, let these photos be your guide to do it now!
