This was a VERY old Big lots, VERY outdated, and absolutely FILTHY. Not to mention it had the old logo. This is was one of the dirtiest stores I had ever been in. closed last year. thank god it closed. It's in a very old dead plaza called "Colvin Plaza" that has slots that have been vacant for over 10 years.:duh:

A Big Lots near me was once a Phar-Mor, then a Books-a-Million...I get the impression that it's kinda dirty....

Follow this link to see a pic of a fairly old-looking Big Lots with some interesting architecture I have never before seen on one of their stores...or any store, really!

Here is one of the Big Lots where I live, it is located in an old Safeway. All the Big Lots here have this style of sign, since they were just changed to that name within the last 5 years. The stores opened as "Pic-N-Save", which was changed to "MacFrugal's Bargains-Closeouts" before the parent company decided to consolidate all their stores under the "Big Lots" banner. (The stores were always owned by the same people, they just used different names in different parts of the country in the 80's and 90's.)

This name, along with Pic-N-Save and Odd Lots was phased out in 1991 in favor of Big Lots. Here is what the inside of a MacFrugal's store looked like:

I have a Big Lots in my town.  It used to be where the Rink's City Store was.  Our store has alot of second hand stuff and brands you probably never heard of.  You should see our store on doughnut day.Shocked

Big Lots in Merced, Ca. This store was a "New Deal" grocery store previously. (New Deal was a local chain, they had this location at the Merced Mall, and another across town in an old Alpha Beta. They went under in the early 1990's)

Ah, I did not know that! I posted a close up of it in the shopping carts thread, as it's actually a MacFrugal's cart. This Big Lots had lots of old Target and Ames carts, which was a bit confusing as there is a Target at the other end of the mall and their carts were almost the same as the ones Big lots has, only the ones at BL had Target scraped off of them.

MacFrugal's was pretty much the same as Big Lots. MacFrugal's was a step up from Pic-N-Save, though, as P-N-S had really cheap, off-brand merchandise, usually. When they changed the name to MacFrugal's, they started to get more name-brand stuff in there. (I have posted a pic of a MacFrugal's cart to the shopping cart thread)
