The one in Lancaster looks like an old Child World/Childrens Palace.

Walking around Ollie's tonight in Greensburg, PA looking for a carpet for my new house, I tripped on this carry-cart. There were quite a few just laying around the store

Good news for me I guess. It was recently announced that an Ollie's is opening up in my area! It is supposed to go in the former Value City...

Never heard of it before, hope it's good.

I got Father's Day gifts for my husband at Ollie's!!! My son picked out a Penn State HEAVY black marbleized coffee mug and a picture book about Elvis. 2 things my husband LOVES. And it was my sweet 11 year old son that picked them out. I picked the cutest gift bag, for only a dollar. Unfortunately, I originally went to Ollie's for a Penn State t-shirt, and the plate and bowls they had with the logo on it, but they didn't have them anymore. Thank goodness my son found the other stuff so I wouldn't have to go driving all over creation to find stuff...

This store just opened around here last week and is doing extremely well. Besides the Walmart carts they use there, the store seems pretty nice.

Ollie's in Greensburg Pa used to be a Phar-mor...I remember it being there, then it was gone.........quite a few years ago though, probably around 2002..?

There was a Phar-Mor on this site that looked just like the Ollie's pictured. It said it opened in 1988. They went out of business in 2002.

Lancaster PA was Child World (or Children's Palace...whatever name they were going by here), York PA was indeed Phar-Mor.

Couple more that they recycled: Wilkes Barre PA was a short-lived Shop Rite, Temple (Reading) PA was Ames

Hazleton PA was Kmart that closed in 1995, but Ollie's is now relocating to the former Gaylords/Glosser Brothers/Value City

I think that's when Phar Mor closed. That Ollie's though I think they opened up in the middle of last year. Last time I went by that shopping center they were levelling the parking lot of something up at the Shop n'Save.

They completely leveled the parking lot. The Ollies has been open for a few years though, I bought some Christmas presents there 2 years ago, plus my husband's birthday presents. He's rather easy to shop for :)

A new Ollie's opened down the road from me a few months ago, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the selection and prices.  They've made a regular customer out of me!  It used to be a Mr. HOW hardware store back in the '80s, and more recently, a mattress store.

I've been to two others: one that was a 99center (opened about 4 years ago) in Florence, KY, and another that was either a Kroger or a Thriftway.

An Ollie's just opened last summer in Taylor, MI, but I have yet to go into there. As far as I can recall, it was originally built as an A&P colonial, then became a Farmer Jack when A&P decided to rebrand all of their Michigan locations to Farmer Jack in the early 1990's, then became an independent supermarket when FJ folded in 2007 and that closed as well, then it became Ollie's. That particular store is also attached to a Sears Outlet store.

An Ollie's that is in Bristol, Pa used to be a Super Fresh Super Store, in a "Futerstore" building.

I was reading today's Detroit News and noticed an ad that mentions Ollie's is soon opening two new Detroit-area stores, in Farmington Hills, MI and Westland, MI. I don't know exactly which buildings they will move into though.  Huh?

New store opening August 21st in Crossgates Commons in Albany, NY

Looks to be around the "back" side of the stores (from the map in the ad announcing it), on the Home Depot side.

This is the first one in the area - closest one now is in Kingston (behind Walmart next to the mall).

Ollie's is expanding down south and is opening for the first time in Georgia. They are opening 4 locations here next month. And to support their expansion down south they are opening up a new distribution center in Commerce, GA. It was be only their seond one in the US.
I'm looking forward to shopping at one, I wanted to check one out for years, never thought they'd ever open up here. They said they are looking at Florida to expanding into next.

I get the feeling the Acme in Exton PA which is closing this month will become an Ollie's. The former Acme in Kennett Square (kind of far away but definitely a town that has a lot of contact with Exton) became an Ollie's a year or two ago, but that was a much smaller store. So most likely the Exton Acme will be split into Ollie's and something else. My guess is Hobby Lobby, but it wouldn't be impossible if Goodwill opened a store at the site to replace their current store in Exton, which is tiny, and in the middle of nowhere with poor visibility and a cramped parking lot.

It's sort of interesting that somewhere along the line the idea didn't come up to take over the Building 19 folks (since they are closing after declaring bankruptcy) - the stores have a similar theme (even to the funny pictures in their logos) and Ollie's isn't in that area yet, but they seem to be expanding (and fairly widely) at this point.

It would be nice if Ollies came to Connecticut, but they probably won't due to Ocean State Job Lot.

They are starting to overlap here in NY, though not in exactly the same spots (Ollie's in Kingston, OSJL in Poughkeepsie and Fishkill, and Ollie's in Guilderland and OSJL in Albany, Schenectady).

Although the Guilderland/Albany ones are only about 4-5 miles apart, so fairly close.

Of course OSJL probably has a few more stores in CT then the 7 or 8 in NY so far, so that might make a difference.
