Big Lots opens, donates to Issaquah school

By Staff

Big Lots is opening at Pickering Place, and the closeout retailer is donating $2,500 to Issaquah Valley Elementary School.

Columbus, Ohio-based Big Lots opened in the space last occupied by Leathers Gallery, a local furniture store. Leathers moved to a space across the parking lot, and Big Lots renovated the former furniture store.

Big Lots plans to donate to the school during the store’s ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. Nov. 16.

The 23,800-square-foot store offers furniture, seasonal goods, home décor, electronics, toys and onetime closeouts. The company hired about 40 or 45 people to staff the Issaquah store.

Big Lots, a Fortune 500 company, operates more than 1,450 stores in 48 states and more than 80 Liquidation World and LW stores in Canada.
