NASCAR 2014 Sprint Cup Series Champion Kevin Harvick is set to make an August appearance in Tullahoma as Pennsylvania-based Ollie’s Bargain Outlet cuts the ribbon on its new store in the Tullahoma Square shopping center.
“We are excited Ollie’s has selected Tullahoma for its next store,” said Tullahoma, TN mayor Lane Curlee. “The retailer will make a great addition to the retail mix in Tullahoma. They have made an excellent choice for a location leading to the largest residential part of Tullahoma.”
Lynn Sebourn, chairman of the Tullahoma Area Economic Development Corporation (TAEDC) also welcomed the announcement of the new business. “Executive Director Thom Robinson has been working with Vita & Vita Realty for more than a year to assist them in bringing a new tenant to this building,” said Sebourn.
According to Sebourn, Robinson and Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Diane Bryant became aware of the Ollie’s possibility through work with retail consulting firm Retail Strategies, LLC of Birmingham.
