This past weekend we went on a mini adventure. Well, James and I did. We ended up on a Date Night to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet that just had their grand opening a few days before. I wasn’t sure what we would find here, or if this would be a store that I would be returning to. Now that Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is Now Open in Mesquite TX, I can bring you a little sneak peek of what is in store for you when you adventure into this store that has taken over my childhood favorite, Toys R Us.
Yes, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet in Mesquite Tx is in the abandoned building of our former Toys R Us. Something that has been there since I was a young child. So as James and I entered the building, I was surprised how much the store was laid out just like the old store it had taken over. 

What Is Ollie’s?

A Little snippet from Ollie’s Website About section:

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is one of America’s largest retailers of closeout merchandise and excess inventory. Our 295 “semi-lovely” stores sell merchandise of all descriptions and some beyond description.

I have to agree. The store was not “lovely” at all. I have been inside of Big Lots a lot growing up, and I would have to say that Ollie’s is a BIGGER and messier than their competitor that’s right down the street. I also have to say that they have a LOT more than their competitor located in the same area. 

What All Does Ollie’s Bargain Outlet In Mesquite TX Have?

A little bit of this, and a little bit of that, and a LOT of something else. as we entered the store, the first wall we noticed was full of lower end electronics. Like the wireless charging pad, James almost bought. Then there is the bedding in the same area. I actually found my old bedding set while looking around. I wish I was brave enough to make a video as we were wandering around the store, but this late night trip on a Saturday, the store was PACKED! 


I have to say I loved the craft aisle. I was even able to find something that I ended up purchasing. A few months ago I picked up a sample pack of metallic papers for my print crafts. I ran out a few weeks ago. So when I notice that they had them also, I HAD to pick up the white and silver ones. They were only $4.99 and listed on the packaging that there were originally $19.99. Office Depot offers the same papers from $7.99 – $12.99 and its available at other stores as well. 

What Surprised Me that Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Carried?

After the cooking and kitchen appliances and dishware, I noticed that there was HUGE rolls of carpet. Not only just the carpet, but all different types of flooring. On top of this there was also the padding to go under the carpets. This really surprised me while we were walking around and the prices on these items were really affordable too. 

The Pots Always On!

It might have been due to it being so busy, but I have to say that the pot was not on, and there was no coffee left. Since it was the first week that Ollie’s was open, I am giving them a pass on this. 

Will We Be Returning To Ollie’s Bargain Outlet in Mesquite TX?

I have to say that I really do like the store. I want to go back after the novelty of the store wears off a little bit and do a video walk around of the store to show you everything Ollie’s has to offer. So be on the lookout for that update or follow our other social media to see the video then!

Where Is Ollie’s Bargain Outlet?

Even though the map still says Toys R Us, it is actually now Ollie’s Bargain Outlet. Its located at Town East Blvd and Gus Thomasson Road. I submitted a change to google, and we will see if it takes place or not.
