PEORIA (25 News Now) - Ollie’s in Peoria has celebrated their grand opening, going from an empty building to open for business in just thirty days.

According to Regional Director Ken Missig, Ollie’s specializes in close-out retail, meaning shoppers can find brand name items for incredible deals. He also says the store has a little something for everyone. “We’ve got a little bit of everything. We’ve got books, we’ve got housewares, bed and bath, a little bit of auto, sporting goods, flooring. You name it, we’ve probably got some version of it somewhere in the store.”

Missig also says the turnout for the store’s first day was excellent. Over two hundred people were lined up outside ahead of the grand opening.

The company plans on adding more locations in central Illinois, but dates for those potential stores have not yet been set.

A store in Rockford opened today as well.
