Washington Court House – A new retailer is coming to Washington Court houses Northside this year Ollie’s Bargain Outlet.
According to the City of WCH Economic development, a lease was signed just recently to rent the building after a study suggested that the retail outlet would be a good fit in the area.
“Ollie’s will be adding 40+ jobs to the local economy and leasing 42,000 square feet of retail space,” said the economic development team.
Joe Denen, City Manager for Washington Court House adds, “Our goal is a broad range of retail, service and dining options that give people the opportunity to stay local. I think Ollie’s will do well and we are happy to welcome Ollie’s investment.”
Ollies will occupy the former Pat Catan building located at 300 Washington Sq in Washington Courthouse.
In February 2016, the locally founded, family-run crafts and decor retailer, was acquired by Michaels Companies Inc. for $150 million. The building was closed in 2019 after Michaels bought Pat Catan’s chain. Michaels reopened only 12 of the stores after the buyout.
A opening date has not yet been posted we will keep you updated when that happens.
