Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Will Open in Williamsburg in Fall 2021

YORK-An Ollie’s Bargain Outlet store will be moving into the former Kmart building on Waller Mill Road this fall.

An employee with the Ollie’s headquarters in Pennsylvania confirmed the news on May 17.

“Yes, we are going to open a store in the former Kmart, hopefully at the end of October 2021,” said Jerry Atland, Senior Vice President for Real Estate for Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, Inc.

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is one of the largest retailers of closeout merchandise and inventory.

The store will open at 118 Waller Mill Road in the shopping center that once housed Kmart. The Kmart store closed in January 2019 after the national corporation went bankrupt.

Rumors first began swirling about Ollie’s earlier this year after people noticed activity within the building after it sat vacant for two years.

This will be the second Ollie’s Bargain Outlet store on the Peninsula, with the other located on Mercury Boulevard in Hampton. Ollie’s also has stores in Gloucester, Portsmouth, and in Richmond.
