Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is celebrating its 400th store with the grand opening of its Springfield, Vt., location.
The new location marks the first Ollie’s in the state of Vermont, officially expanding the company’s footprint into 26 states.
“Since our humble beginnings in Mechanicsburg, Pa., almost 39 years ago, we have experienced explosive growth while staying true to our roots of offering customers brand name merchandise at up to 70% off the fancy store prices,” said John Swygert, president and CEO of Ollie’s Bargain Outlet.
Ollie’s brings roughly 50-60 new jobs to the local community with each new store it opens, ranging from cashiers to store team leaders. The retailer employs more than 10,000 associates across the company.
The Springfield store is located at 32 Springfield Plaza Rd.
