HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WETM) – A new sign on the former Kmart building in Horseheads indicates that Ollie’s Bargain Outlet will be coming to Grand Central Plaza.
The sign was first noticed on Tuesday afternoon at the former Kmart building, which has been largely empty since March 2019 when Kmart closed. The building has been used for craft fairs and other events in the meantime.
Ollie’s Senior Vice President for Marketing and Advertising tells 18 News that the store plans to open in the fall, but no exact date has been set.
Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is “one of America’s largest retailers of closeout merchandise and excess inventory” with more than 400 stores, the closest currently being in Ithaca.
