Big Lots open for business

A line formed out the door of the new Big Lots for its grand opening on Friday, Nov. 16. District Manager Vincent Zaluski and store manager Bill Ringer kicked off the event by presenting a $2,500 check to the Granville elementary school as the school’s students of the month and their parents watched.

Mayor Brian LaRose thanked the store for coming to Granville, and then the students were asked to line up in front of the store and cut the opening ribbon.

The public was invited to join in the celebration, and people formed a line to partake in gift cards, pastries, sheet cake, coffee, travel mugs and other giveaways. The store featured deals throughout the day. Management is pleased with business following the Nov. 8 soft opening.

“The response from customers has been extremely positive,” Zaluski said. “They’re happy for somewhere to shop in this area.”

He said the 28,000-square-foot store employs approximately 45 people and carries a wide range of name-brand merchandise. He pointed out the huge, 7,000-square-foot furniture line. The store, he said, has performed ahead of projections and has been very busy.

The Granville Big Lots was one of 66 nationwide to hold an opening on Friday.
