Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Coming To Albany Mall


Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is set to lease a big space at the Albany Mall. The discount retail store chain, which has hundreds of locations across the US will occupy nearly 32,000 square feet of the mall.

Spinoso Real Estate Group announced the lease on January 31. There was no immediate word on when work would start on the store or an opening date.

This will be the sixth Ollie’s location in South Georgia, joining the existing locations in Cordele, Douglas, Thomasville, Tifton, and Waycross.

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is America’s largest chain of discount closeout retailers, with over 460 stores across 29 states. The company’s first store opened in Mechanicsburg, PA in 1982. Ollie’s operates on the motto “Good Stuff Cheap” and has an enthusiastic following.

The reviews for the store in Tifton seem to be generally positive. We stumbled across one from Julitta R. and it read as follows:

There is a very good variety of things here. The book section is fabulous, the carpets come in beautiful colors and sizes and pricing is great on everything. Love this store. Staff are ready to help with anything and is very friendly.

While Ollie’s original distribution center is in Pennsylvania, the company opened its second distribution center in Atlanta, GA in 2014, paving the way for further expansion into the Southeast. You can learn more about Ollie’s and their stores here.
