Ollie’s customers line up around the block for grand opening in Grand Central Plaza



Horseheads, New York – In order to see the inside of the new Ollie’s location in Grand Central Plaza, excited customers lined up around the block.

After KMart closed its location in March 2019, the building had been closed for several years.

According to Brent Moody, New York District Manager, September’s hiring event had an excellent turnout. “The job fair was huge. The turnout for this community was massive.” Around 180 people applied, triple the expected number. That number “is huge for this market”, Moody said.

This time of year, Moody said the toys are front and center as families get ready to do their holiday shopping.

The store’s regular hours will be from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
