A new store opened up in Gulfport today with a pretty special guest.
Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Paul Molitor signed autographs for guests at the grand opening of Ollie’s Bargain Outlet in Gulfport. The nationwide chain has more than 300 outlets in 23 states, including five in Mississippi.
The store sells many different types of products at wholesale value, giving customers discounts of up to 75 percent. Ollie’s District Team Leader Zack Shields said, “We deal in brand names. The store is full of them. It’s an exciting place to shop when you want to come in and maybe you have that coffee pot you need to replace or maybe that mattress. We have mattresses, rugs. We have rugs, toys, hardware, sporting goods. You name it, we got it in here.”
Ollie’s is open Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
