ALBERTVILLE, Ala. - People have another choice for bargain shopping in Albertville. Wednesday, Ollie's Bargain Outlet opened at the Crossroads Annex on U.S. Highway 431, across from the Crossroads Mall.
Ollie's is a chain, and this is the 11th store in Alabama. Hall of Fame pitcher Phil Niekro is signing autographs for fans from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Niekro was an All-Star pitcher with Atlanta Braves, and also played for the New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays during his career.
A spokesperson for Ollie's says this new store creates 60 jobs for the community.
