Have you heard of Ocean State Job Lot? You’re a discount store headquartered in Rhode Island but have locations across the northeast.
Your choice is very wide. You can get pretty much anything here. Discounted housewares, apparel, pet supplies, kitchen staples, and seasonal produce are just the beginning. Ocean State Job Lot is ideal for pool and beach items. There is an adjustable zero gravity chair on their website that I keep an eye on.
What’s the best part about Ocean State Job Lot opening in our neighborhood? Jobs. The retailer is slated to open its doors this fall, according to NJ.com.
In a press release, Paul Cox, Director of Store Operations at Ocean State Job Lot said:
Ocean State Job Lot is committed to expanding and growing throughout the Northeast and we are excited to add another location due to the warm welcome we have received in our other New Jersey markets. We look forward to creating new jobs, filling a large vacancy in a popular mall, and bringing great values and a friendly shopping experience to the freehold community.
These other New Jersey locations include Clinton, Deptford, Franklin Park, South Plainfield, and Sparta.
