Reminds me of Ocean State Job Lot in my neck of the woods. (private)

Ocean State does well here. ~130 stores northeast. Treasure hunting. Some good quality stuff cheap.

Ollie's => oooph, goodwill/intangibles 65% of total assets. Pre-IPO. No impairment so far.

Cash machine.

Founder owns a chunk.

Last year opened 1st store in RI near Ocean State's HQ. Shot across the quarterdeck.

Yes, fall.
