Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, a national discount retailer, will open its new Auburn-area store at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25.
The new store, located in the Fingerlakes Crossing shopping center at 1614 Clark St., is taking over the freestanding building that last served as a boat showroom for Frontenac Harbor. Previously, it has housed a clothing store and an electronics retailer.
The Pennsylvania-based Ollie’s built a 3,500-square-foot addition to the existing building to serve as a warehouse. Now, the 24,000 square-foot facility will employ between 45 and 55 local workers, said Jerry Altland, Ollies’ vice president of real estate.
According to the company’s website, there are still three part-time and one full-time positions available. Those interested in applying can submit an application online at ollies.us/careers.
