The Southgate Big Lots is on the move, but it’s not going far.
In fact, customers visiting the new store won’t have to leave the same street.
The discount retail store has made a move from its previous location at 14155 Eureka Road to a 30,354-square-foot-store at 14333 Eureka Road.
While the new location is open, a reopening ribbon cutting will be held there on June 19.
Dustin Lent, Southgate city administrator, said the move has been in the works for about a year.
From the city’s perspective, this has been a quick turnaround.
Some improvements have been made to the exterior of the building.
Lent said Big Lots was looking for more space and this location fits the bill.
The building, which Lent said is about 650 feet from the old location, used to be home to a Toys ‘R Us store and is in a high-traffic area.
It has been empty for several years, although city officials could not say exactly how many.
Now, the building at the old location is empty and Lent said a sign has been posted that it is available for lease.
“We’re thrilled to continue our tradition of bringing the Big Lots experience to Southgate with the opening of our new location,” said Shannon Letts, senior vice president of Real Estate Development at Big Lots. “At Big Lots, it is our mission to help our customers live bigger and better by delivering exceptional value on everything they need for their homes and everything they want for themselves. During each visit, customers can expect a fun, friendly neighborhood shopping experience.”
There is an added area to the store.
“The Lot” is a newly dedicated section in each store that houses unique seasonal items, electronics, clothing, accessories and more.
The store also has implemented a number of procedures in accordance with government requirements to protect the health and well-being of community members in each store.
Big Lots has implemented services such as contactless curbside pickup, same day delivery, and buy online and pick up in-store through BigLots.com to limit interactions.
