Olympia Sports manager Brad Simmons (left) and workers Logan Maloney and Sarah Piper were among those on hand last weekend for the store’s official grand opening. Ranson Mayor David Hamill presided over the official ribbon cutting ceremony, held at 11 a.m. on July 28 at the store at 217 Oak Lee Drive in the Marketplace at Potomac Towne Center, near the Weis supermarket. Founded in Maine in 1975, Olympia now has more than 200 stores in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, but the Ranson shop is the chain’s first West Virginia location.
