The Ribbon's Cut: Big Lots is Officially Open
The store gave $2,500 to Wild Horse Elementary.
The Big Lots in Chesterfield Valley officially opened Friday.
Big Lots, which offers closeout prices on brand-name products, has its soft opening about a week ago. The ribbon-cutting ceremony occurred at 9 a.m. Friday, and about 15 customers were lined up and ready to peruse the aisles for deals.
The store presented a $2,500 check to Wild Horse Elementary School, which Principal Karen Kieffer said would likely be used to purchase new computers.
Located in the old Circuit City space, the store is about 23,000 square feet and has a furniture department along with the typical Big Lots offerings of toys, housewares, seasonal products and more.
Gift cards and swag are being given to customers Friday while supplies last.
