Big Lots: Home Key in 4Q
Staff Staff -- Home Textiles Today, January 24, 2012
Home is showing promise at Big Lots, with the category's comp up in the low single digits during the recent third quarter.
During the 1,445-unit chain's earnings call Dec. 5, chairman, ceo and president Steve Fishman singled home out as "an important part of Q4."
Home and furniture are also becoming a focal point in the company's recently acquired 85-unit Canadian operation, Big Lots Canada, where both categories along with seasonal and toys are getting "positive customer feedback."
