Did you know Big Lots gives back to the community by funding housing, food-distribution, healthcare and education in communities through its own foundation called the Big Lots Foundation?
It gives back to the communities that support it through its charitable endeavors.
Sol Shenk created the first closeout store, called ‘Odd Lots’ in 1967 under the umbrella of the Consolidated Stores Corporation.
A name controversy soon emerged, since in 1983 a retailer called Revco purchased a company that was named ‘Odd Lots trading co.’
So, Sol Shenk’s Odd Lots store agreed to keep its original ‘Odd Lots’ name limited to its original Columbus location radius, and when it expanded outside of that radius it used the new name ‘Big Lots’.
Personally, I like ‘Big Lots’ much better than ‘Odd Lots’, and I wonder if the name switch was a contributing factor to its success.
What I do know is that if you want to help it keep growing, you can take the Biglotssurvey at www.biglotssurvey.com to give them great feedback they can use to grow.
Taking the survey also enters yourself in a nice little $300 gift card sweepstakes at the same time.
