What You Need To Know Before Buying Big Lots Furniture
What Is Big Lots?
Big Lots, formerly called Consolidated Stores Corporation, is a retail close-out store known for saving people money with super-discounted sales. Although they sell virtually everything, items such as groceries can be of poor quality, but customers have had positive experiences when buying home furnishings.
What Are Its Branches?
Big Lots has stores across the U.S., including 30 locations just in Alabama where the company was ranked number three out of the 10 largest departmental stores. In addition to furniture, they have departments for clothing, beauty and personal care, kids and baby, and much more, which you can find on their website.
Types Of Furniture
Big Lots has 26 different departments of furniture including sofas and sectionals, recliners, beds, and dressers and nightstands. They even have more niche departments like gaming furniture and fireplace furniture, so if you need it, you might just find it at Big Lots.
What Size?
When buying furniture, think of both its present and future functions, and how it will fit in your space. It’s also important to consider not just the size of the space where the furniture will go, but the size of the doorway, staircase, and other areas through which the furniture will be moved.
Unlike companies like Wayfair which source from professional designers, Big Lots acquires its merchandise as overstock from manufacturers. They have more options than stores like West Elm, which only sells modern furniture, but IKEA offers minimalist ready-to-assemble furniture that could be more appealing.
