Bargain hunting is no joke, and when word got around that a bargain hunter's dream store was coming to Ocean County, people definitely got the message.

With the grand opening of Ollie's Bargain Outlet in the Indian Head Shopping Center in Toms River yesterday, eager shoppers showed up in force.

The Asbury Park Press reports that lines snaked out the door and around the corner as people looking for that brag-worthy deal patiently waited on an August day more like it was November's Black Friday.

Back in the spring I told you about how I've found some great bargains of my own at Ollie's when I lived in Pennsylvania, so I can personally speak to the fact that there are definitely some gems to be found.

If you want to go on the bargain hunt for yourself, you can check out the now-open Ollie's in the Indian Head Shopping Center at the intersection of Route 9 and Indian Head Road in Toms River.
