has anyone been to a store called Ollie's? it's off-putting in a way I can't really articulate rn


it's like selling the detritus of capitalism for very cheap, which gives it some points I suppose. but it's like if a bargain bin was the size of an entire store. everything is everywhere, in some cases making it actively harder to buy things. there was literally piles of comic anthology books - the kind that sells at b&n for $25 - for $4, but they weren't even arranged with the spines facing out, you had to dig through the piles to even see what was there. and on top of all this, they had giant pictures of their kinda creepy cartoon mascot every ten feet. it just... didn't feel of his world. 100% a liminal space
