Big Lots, the Ohio-based Fortune 500 company with 1,400 stores across the country, is opening a new store in West Fargo. The store will open Oct. 28 at 1500 13th Ave. E., West Fargo. It’s one of 80 new Big Lots stores opening in 2010.
F-M residents may remember Fargo had a Big Lots store from late 2000 to early 2006. It was closed with a group of underperforming stores, a company spokeswoman said. Its location, in the former Menards buildings east of West Acres, didn’t help any, it seems. The only store still open in that once-filled spot is Savers Thrift Store.
