Big Lots Blows Out Back-to-Campus Initiative

Posted In: Retail Articles


As the move to college gets underway, Big Lots is offering an expanded selection of campus living essentials and has modified its store space accordingly.

Big Lots has created back-to-campus centers in its stores where students and families can find deals on everything needed for a dorm room or apartment including furniture, décor, bedding, food and snacks, laundry and cleaning products as well as beauty and personal care items, school supplies and housewares ranging from dinnerware, small appliances, and cookware to food storage, gadgets and trash cans.

The in-store component is repeated on the retailer’s website at biglots.com/c/back-to-campus.

The in-store back-to-campus center includes vignettes that display combinations of furniture, décor, appliances and other essentials students need to furnish their campus homes, the company noted. The items are displayed as collections, including Big Lots exclusives from Real Living and Broyhill assortments that can suit a variety of personalities with gender-neutral options available. 

“Whether you’re moving into a new dorm, apartment or home, Big Lots is the place to go to cross everything off your shopping list, plus a few surprising extras, at bargain prices,” said Bruce Thorn, president and CEO, in announcing the collegiate initiative. “This year, we’ve expanded our already unmatched selection of campus living essentials and treasures, plus grouped them in a convenient ‘store-within-a-store,’ where you can find and compare items and styles to outfit your unique living space.”
