Welcome to the Olga Mall… It’s a special place you may or may not be familiar with already. No problem, because now you are and once you are, it’s a place you can stop by and visit time and again to simply get away from it all. Who knew? We knew and now you do.
While you’re visiting you can have a deli sandwich of your choice, an ice cream sandwich or snack, soft drink, iced-tea or enjoy the Daily Deli Treat. It’s always something good, and most of the time it’s also something different. You can chit chat, make friends, and best of all browse for unique ‘things’ of all kinds large and small, fresh vegetables by the season, gifts and collectables.
Directions: The Olga Mall is located in Southwest Florida, at the north end of Fort Myers, east of I-75 off Hwy/SR 80, near the Caloosahatchee River about five miles from the interstate.
It’s always been there, tucked into the neighborhood just east of Riverdale High School and near the intersection of SR80 and Buckingham Road. If you travel that way for other things, you’ve driven near the Olga Mall many times but you just didn’t know it.
- After you go through the intersection traveling from the west, look for the Tractor Supply store and turn left there, go about a 1/4 mile and the Olga Mall will be on your left.
- If you are traveling north on Buckingham Road, go through the intersection, about a 1/4 mile, and the Olga Mall will be on your right.
Yep, there is a small community named Olga, and the Olga Mall is in the center of everything. Well, there really isn’t much there, aside from the Community Center building and attached park that sits next door to the Olga Mall. The surrounding community includes mostly homes that have been there for years. Many of the homes sit on river access canals, and many of the residents grew up in Olga, too.
So, what are you waiting for? Next chance you have, visit the Olga Mall inperson, on weekdays and on Saturdays. We hope to meet you soon!
