We took our older son to see the Flying Squirrels play last night (it was a blast – he’s five and is just starting to follow how baseball works. He insisted that I pay attention to all pitches so I could tell him if they were balls or strikes, and whether that was “good for the Flying Squirrels or not”)
But of course I can’t help looking for more bargains at the ballpark. I found these two and will add them to the main Flying Squirrels deal post here.
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Cheap Seats – What’s up with the “Ollie’s Cheap Seats” banner way down the third base line? Tickets in section 217 are available each game for $4. (You can purchase online – look for the “$4.00 – Ollie’s Seats” option – but there’s a $1.50 convenience charge for each.)
I’ve marked the location of the cheap seats above with a black arrow.
Wash Em Down Wednesday – On Wednesdays, beers are available for $2 each. This isn’t mentioned on the Squirrels website, possibly because of weird ABC laws regarding advertising alcoholic beverage specials. Anyway, the sign didn’t specify, but I assume this applies to the small size beers (Around 14oz and $5.75 each normally, I think but don’t quote me)
What is Ollie Days? It’s our way of saying “thank you” for putting up with us for another year! Customer Appreciation Ollie Days means that everything in the store is at least 15% off our already low price, plus 25% off all patio furniture. No holds barred, no gimmicks!

If you’ve never been, Ollie’s is somewhat similar to Big Lots
Yesterday’s junk mail included an ad for Ollie Days at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, which states (if your eyes survive the blaring assault of color and text) that everything in the store is 15% off regular price now through Sunday July 6th.
I saw the ads for Ollie’s (with the same headache-inducing powers) last fall when the Richmond locations opened, but haven’t had a chance to check it out. No time like the present! Ollie’s merchandise includes “…closeouts, overstocks, package changes, manufacturer refurbs, and irregulars.” It sounds most similar to Big Lots, so I’ll be interested to see how it compares.
