According to Ollie’s officials, the store prides itself on on selling quality products cheaper than they could be purchased almost anyone else. was given the opportunity to tour the store one week out from its grand-opening, and Ollie’s did not lie about their prices. All items in the store were seemingly free compared to other large box stores.
