Ollie's Bargain Outlet with close to 300 stores nationwide will open June 13 in LaPorte.

The company bills itself as one of the nation's largest providers of close-out brand name merchandise and excess inventory ranging from sporting goods to flooring and non-perishable food.

Jerry Altland, vice-president of real estate for the company out of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, said most of their products are obtained from manufacturers letting them go for reasons like excess inventory and changes in packaging.

''As long as it's a name brand. That's our focus. Name brand,'' Altland said.

The merchandise is offered from 20 to 70-percent less than the original prices, Altland said.

The LaPorte store is at the Pine Lake Shopping Center next to Kroger in the old Tractor Supply building.

According to company webpage, Ollie's Bargain Outlet first opened in 1982 in Pennsylvania and now has stores in 20 states like Michigan, Ohio and as far south as Mississippi and Florida.

Eight other stores in Indiana include those in Ft. Wayne, Lafayette, Indianapolis and Kokomo, Altland said.
