Ocean State Job Lot to Move Into Former Benny's Locations

A Rhode Island-based discount retailer is moving into three spaces formerly occupied by another discount store.

Ocean State Job Lot stores will open at former Benny's locations in Cranston, Warwick and Wakefield.

The Carpionato Group, which bought the former Benny's buildings, made the announcement Wednesday.

Ocean State Job Lot will relocate existing stores in Warwick and Wakefield into the new bigger spaces in those communities. The Cranston space will give Ocean State Job Lot two stores in the city.

The Carpionato Group said the three locations will receive upgrades.

Benny's, which also had stores in Massachusetts and Connecticut, closed all of its 31 stores in 2017.

Ocean State Job Lot has 133 stores across New England, New York, and New Jersey.
