Ollie's creeps me out
 
2022-09-29 10:07:44 AM  
there is an ollie's that just opened up near me.  it reminds me of the old scratch and dent stores of the 80s.  sometimes you can find a winner, but it seems more like a yard sale than anything else.

Planned to make a pilgrimage to the Ollie's in West Frankfort. Then out to Ziegler which almost became our nation's capitol.

If I worked for an inventory counting team and we had to work an Ollie's, I'd call in sick that day.

If you like comic books and have an Ollie's near you, check out their tpb section (keep in mind that some have better selection than others). I can't tell you how much money I've saved and how many new books I've given a shot to that I never would have otherwise. I have stacks of books that I got for $3-5. We're talking 90% off in many cases. I got the entire run of Scott Snyder's Batman for like $3 a volume. I never would have even read that otherwise.

Ollie's reminds me of the old Williamsburg Pottery

I went to an Ollie's during their "Members Only" Christmas pre sale.  If there is a hell, that's what it is.  So many people in the store you can't move, everyone jockeying for the lame knockoff toys, and the lightly used food aisle being overrun by very large white Americans.

That is the world's largest? I am not impressed.

Eh, they can have decent stuff at times. Got a few books for pennies on the dollar, and we got a refurbished Shark vacuum 50% off, it's still going like 8 years later. Holiday decorations overstock are usually good too.

That said we only go there maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

Well, recall that the previous record holder was Giada de Laurentis.  Not a doll of her - the actual person.

I get work shirts and pants at the local Ollie's.  $5 per shirt and ~$10 for pants.

They still do this?  I thought the Point of Sale system handled the inventory control and reorders.  People still go down the aisle with the telxon?

Knew a company that went in at store's closing, worked all night to get the inventory numbers.

I think they still need to do an audit to verify the system is working. And not hiding revenue among other things to check for.

Could turn this in to a gianter bobblehead.  For five bucks, a giant hand could chump slap it.  For 10 dollars, you can kneel a d pray before it.

Oh yes. It's the best way to catch internal theft and incompetence.

You don't have to dress up nice like you're going to BigLots.

POS can't account for theft and other shrinkage
