Big Lots, the nation’s largest broadline closeout retailer, is celebrating the completion of its’ newly remodeled locations throughout the San Francisco/San Jose metropolitan area on Oct. 18 with several days of special grand reopening deals for customers. Shoppers in these communities will now have refreshed locations where they can shop, discover and save on a wide selection of brand-name merchandise and one-time closeouts.
Twelve stores have been revitalized with all new flooring and ceilings, fresh paint, updated fixtures and upgraded lighting, along with new cash wraps, restroom facilities, and outdoor facelifts. The improvements allow for cleaner, clearer aisles, making for an improved and more organized store layout.
