At the moment, there are only 5 locations in the entire Capital Region. Soon to be 6 and jobs added to the Collar City.

The popular discount store to make its entrance into Troy is none other than Ocean State Job Lots. Currently, they have a location in Clifton Park, Ballston Spa, Albany in Crossgates Commons, Valatie and Schenectady.

The new location will take over the area formerly inhabited by TJ Maxx in the Van Rensselaer Plaza across from Hudson Valley Community College.

Being that this isn't new construction, the turn around time to open the new location should be pretty quick. According to the Times Union, the chain will open the location by the end of the year 2018. They are hoping that it beat the holiday rush and be open by Thanksgiving.
