The kinds of patio furniture Big Lots offers include resin wicker furniture, patio sets, patio tables, patio chairs and benches, along with patio furniture for small spaces. The company’s website features a Mix and Match section displaying a variety of tables, chairs, cushions and other items to personalize outdoor spaces.
Big Lots boasts a selection of outdoor furniture for a patio, porch, deck or balcony, including cushioned, stacking or folding patio chairs. The company also offers easily assembled sun shelters, gazebos, and lighted, adjustable or offset umbrellas to complement patio furniture. However, not all Big Lots stores carry furniture due to space limitations, as a store location must be approximately 4,000 square feet in size to do so.
Operating 1,495 stores in 48 states as of 2015, Big Lots sells an assortment of merchandise, including furniture, home decor, electronics, food items and consumables. The store also offers housewares, toys, accessories and seasonal products. Big Lots is the biggest broadline closeout retailer in North America, having yearly sales amounting above $5.4 billion, according to its official website.
Closeouts refer to first-quality, brand-name items sold at significantly affordable prices. Big Lots buys closeout merchandise from its network of more than 3,000 manufacturers. Due to its bargain prices, Big Lots usually appeals to shoppers who want the lowest prices around as well as those who want cheaper brand-name products.
