Trying to tie the knot for cheap? Ollie’s Bargain Outlet has you covered

Megan Tomasic

“Good stuff cheap” and … weddings?

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet is getting into the marriage business, selling wedding dresses and bridesmaid gowns over the course of five days.

The discount store is taking regularly priced wedding gowns and slashing prices, dropping the regular price of thousands of dollars to the lower hundreds.

Here’s how it will work: All wedding dresses regularly priced at $2,500 will be $199.99. Wedding dresses regularly priced over $2,500 will cost $299.99, and all formal bridesmaid and prom dresses will be $39.99.

The sale starts Feb. 21 at 9 a.m. and lasts through Feb. 25 at the Greensburg, Belle Vernon, Altoona, Butler and New Castle stores.

But don’t forget to wear a tank top and leggings or gym shorts to the event. Ollie’s is “not like the fancy stores so there will be no fitting rooms,” their Facebook post reads.

Mirrors will be set up around the store to see what dresses look like over clothes.

Ollie’s bought almost 11,000 wedding dresses and almost 18,000 formal dresses, some with price tags up to $6,000.

All dresses can be returned or exchanged up to seven days from the date of purchase.

Ollie’s sells everything from food to home goods, pet supplies and electronics.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
