NORWICH – If you’re looking for bargains, you’ll soon have another option in Norwich.

Steals & Deals will be opening its doors in a few weeks next to Staples at Norwich Landing at 45 Salem Turnpike. The plaza also is home to KFC, River Vallery Surgery Center, Sprint, Great Scot! and a Red Cross blood donation center.

“We’re almost ready to open up,” said Jason Haller, who owns the business with his wife, Tammy Haller.

The store will sell open box and liquidated closeout merchandise, Haller said. Items will include tools, home fixtures, cleaning supplies, small appliances, bedding, decor and clothing.

“We have tons and tons of merchandise,” Haller said. “There’s always something for everybody.”

He and his wife started selling online four or five years ago, and a few months ago decided to open the store. It will have five employees and will be open seven days per week, Haller said.

“We decided to go to the top at an 8,000-square foot location,” Haller said.

The store will have 5,500 square feet of retail space and another 2,200 feet of warehouse space, according to city zoning records. Plaza owner Harry Leiser renovated the exterior of the store, and the Hallers are working on the interior.
