Big Lots opening Nov. 16

T he sign is going up, the help-wanted ads have appeared, and Granville residents will finally get a chance to shop at the new Big Lots on Friday, Nov. 16.

Advertising officials at the overstock merchandiser said that will be the day the store opens its new facility in the old Ames building on Quaker Street.

The store will be accepting applications for associates next week. Applications will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Oct. 1 to 5.

Big Lots has more than 1,400 stores in 48 states. The closest stores to Granville are in Clifton Park, Rutland, Vt., and Claremont, N.H. There are also five stores in the greater Albany area.

Big Lots sells a broad range of high-quality, brand-name products, including consumables, seasonal items, furniture, housewares, toys, electronics, home decor, tools and gifts. The store says it offers brand-name closeouts and bargains.

A.J.’s Restaurant is also in the plaza, which is next to the shopping center with Tractor Supply Co., Label Shopper and several dollar stores. Two new businesses, a restaurant and a barbershop, are opening in October along the same stretch of Quaker Street.

Big Lots, Inc. was founded in 1967 and its revenues are near $5 billion annually.  Shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol BIG.

Workers were at the building Tuesday putting the sign up on the building
