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.
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.”
