Ollie's Bargain Outlet to Fill Milgen Road Vacancy Left by Kmart

Ollie's Bargain Outlet to fill Milgen Road vacancy left by Kmart. A vacancy has been filled in the Columbus retail market, with an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet opening soon in space formerly occupied by Kmart on Milgen Road. Ollie is scheduled to open Jan. 14 at 5596 Milgen Road. Manchester Square shopping center also is home to a Piggly Wiggly supermarket and a Family Dollar store. Kmart vacated the premises in 2012 as part of a major round of store closings by Sears Holdings Corp., with the Columbus store and one in Auburn, Ala., among more than 100 underperforming locations shuttered across the U.S. at that time. That left three Kmart outlets in Columbus and Phenix City and the Sears department store at Columbus Park Crossing, all of which have escaped the retailer’s belt-tightening thus far. Ollie's Bargain Outlet began preparing for its upcoming opening in Columbus last summer. A city building permit in September shows $300,000 was spent on improvements at Manchester Square. The new tenant stocks its warehouse-style stores with merchandise found through manufacturers’ excess inventory, discontinued stock and salvaged goods through insurers, according to the company’s website. That can include products recovered following a store fire.
