Ocean State Job Lot is the biggest closeout provider in the Northeast of the USA. On August 15, 1977, they launched their first shop in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. They began their business with the view that people worked hard for their income, so if they could help them save money to gain more, they would succeed. It is all right so far!

Now, they operate more than 140 shops. They have broadened their activity scope beyond the Ocean State, having shops in all of New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Ocean State Job Lot, a big retail company with 5,003 employees and $700.0M of annual revenue, is headquartered in Rhode Island.

At a fraction of the typical prices, the company offers a continuously changing variety of household items,  apparel, supplies for pets, kitchen pantry staples, and seasonal products (such as supplies for holidays, gardening, patio, or pools).

As Ocean State Job Lot has continued to expand, the duty to take care of people that live and work here has become increasingly important. The welfare works are vital for the organization. They consider themselves value seekers. It means they can make a dollar go further than most. It allows them to donate greatly to many vital issues that include children's education, healthcare, veteran and military families assistance, helping the homeless, aiding animal rescue, and the war against hunger.

When it all started, there were just three of them selling electric items on the northeast flea markets.
