Big Lots, the nation’s largest broadline closeout retailer, is celebrating the completion of its’ newly remodeled locations throughout the Tri-Cities area on Thursday, July 4 with several days of special re-grand opening 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.

Four 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. “This area is very important to us; our investment in this market is a significant one. We’ve basically taken the shell of the old store and rebuilt it, giving a “like-new” experience. Shoppers are going to notice a dramatic difference,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer for Big Lots, John Martin.

The newly remodeled locations will kick off the celebrations with ribbon cutting ceremonies on July 4, at 9 a.m., with all six stores in the Tri-Cities region celebrating with festivities that will continue through Sunday, July 7. The four days of giveaways and specials will take place at the following locations:

Remodeled Locations:

  • 1103 Volunteer Parkway, Bristol
  • 1475 East Andrew Johnson Highway, Greeneville
  • 3110 East Oakland Avenue, Johnson City
  • 1913 Sherwood Road, Kingsport

Additional Celebrating Stores:

  • US Highway 321, Elizabethton
  • 420 Park Boulevard, Rogersville

Savvy shoppers know Big Lots helps them stretch their budgets by stocking stores with merchandise that typically sells for 20 to 40 percent less than discount stores and up to 70 percent below traditional retailers.

“Through these remodels, we hope to provide a shopping experience for our customers that better portrays the unique energy that is vital to the Big Lots personality – great merchandise at an incredible price, the thrill of saving money and the joy of shopping in a clean, bright store,” said Martin.
