A new Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is opening in Ponca City on Oct. 13 at 9 am. in the Ponca Plaza, 2005 N. 14th Street and three time NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart will be on site to celebrate.

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is one of America’s largest retailers of closeout merchandise and excess inventory. The stores sell merchandise of all descriptions and some beyond description at what is described as real bargain prices.

Products offered include housewares, sporting goods, flooring and food. Ollie’s buyers scour the world looking for closeouts, overstocks, package changes, manufacturer refurbished goods, and irregulars.

Much of the merchandise comes direct from the finest manufacturers in the country and abroad. For example, if a manufacturer makes too much of an item, or changes their packaging, Ollie’s will buy the overstocked or old packaged items. Customers will always find famous brand name products at Ollie’s, but a lot of them could be last year’s colors, patterns or packaging that traditional retailers won’t sell.

When companies are liquidated, the banks will often sell remaining inventories and turn them into cash. Ollie’s will buy the goods back and pass the savings on to you, the customer.

Purchases are covered by a 30-day “No Hard Time” guarantee. Items can be returned within 30 days of purchase for a full refund with sales receipt.

A total of 250 tickets will be distributed at 7:30 am on Wednesday, Oct. 13th  for the Tony Stewart autograph session that is scheduled for 10 a.m.  Tickets are limited to one per customer. 

Since first wheeling a go-kart in 1978 at a Westport, Indiana, racetrack, Tony Stewart went on to score 13 driving championships. His most widely-known titles are the three he scored in the NASCAR Cup Series (2002, 2005, 2011). 

The Columbus, Indiana, native came to NASCAR in 1999 by way of the IndyCar Series, where he was the series champion in 1997. And before he made his mark in Indy cars, Stewart made a name for himself in the rough-and-tumble world of the United States Auto Club (USAC). He has four USAC championships, including what at the time was an unprecedented win of USAC’s “Triple Crown.”

Along the way, Stewart has won some of the biggest races in motorsports. He is a two-time winner of the Brickyard 400 (2005, 2007), a seven-time winner of the season-opening NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway (2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013) and a two-time winner of the famed Chili Bowl, an all-star Midget race at the Tulsa Expo Raceway (2002, 2007). He’s also won such famed USAC races as the Copper World Classic at Phoenix International Raceway (2000), the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway (2000) and the 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio (1995).

And before he was a race winner and championship contender, Stewart was a rookie on the rise. The Hoosier won Rookie of the Year honors in the NASCAR Cup Series (1999), the Indianapolis 500 (1996) and USAC (1991).

After a 20-year NASCAR driving career, the last 18 of which were spent in the NASCAR Cup Series, Stewart retired from his NASCAR driving duties following the 2016 season to focus on his co-ownership of Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR)
