Big Lots stores sell furniture such as beds, dining room tables and outdoor furniture. The company Odd Lots started using the name Big Lots in 1985, but didn't convert all of its stores to the new name until 2001, according to Big Lots.
Big Lots is a closeout retail chain that stocks a mix of food, home goods and furniture in its stores. Most Big Lots stores feature a furniture department with a range of products from sofas to mattresses.
The furniture department has frequent turnover of products due to low prices, sales or a limited availability of furniture. Customers can usually visit a local Big Lots and find small, well-padded sofas, love seats and reclining chairs from brands like La-Z-Boy and Simmons.
Big Lots also offers discounts mattresses from Serta and other brands, as well as bed frames, bunk beds and futons. The stores usually run an annual sale on futons for back-to-school, as well as an annual mattress sale.
Customers can also find dining room tables and chairs made from wood. Some larger stores may feature dressers, side tables, large mirrors and outdoor furniture. This includes metal or plastic wicker patio tables and chairs, umbrellas and small side tables.
