Big Lots opening at Carolina Pavilion

A new Big Lots store opens soon in south Charlotte, in the Carolina Pavilion shopping center, replacing another store on South Boulevard.

The store's grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 20, at 9 a.m. The company is also donating $1,500 to South Mecklenburg High School.

The new store is 24,000 square feet, and replaces the Big Lots store formerly at 6025 South Boulevard.

Big Lots is a "closeout retailer," meaning the store buys discounted goods that aren't selling well elsewhere, are overstocked, or are from places that are going out of business. It then sells them at a lower price to consumers.

Here's the store's description of itself, in case you're not familiar with them: "As North America's largest broadline closeout retailer, Big Lots has the power to negotiate the best deals in the business. We sell a broad range of high-quality, brand-name products, including consumables, seasonal items, furniture, housewares, toys, electronics, home decor, tools and gifts."

"Big Lots is a "closeout retailer""

They used to be, it lost that stigma around the time Big Lots moved out of Freedom Drive (now Rose's). It is now just a Family Dollar/Dollar General clone. I miss the old days of Big Lots where you did expect a deal, and got one.
