Tuesday, November 15, 2022 - The City of Sallisaw’s Director of Economic Development, George Bormann, announced today that the retail chain store Big Lots will soon be coming to Sallisaw.
“The store will be located in the old Walmart building on the east end of town," Bornann said. "Rhino Investment Group has already started the remodel of the store, which is expected to bring approximately 100 job opportunities to the area."
Early in 2022, the company said in an investor presentation that it plans to open more than 500 new stores over the next several years, following a decade in which it put its expansion on hold. Big Lots will open around 50 new stores in 2022.
The store, which is easily recognized by its large orange, black, and white signs, carries a wide variety of merchandise at discounted prices.
At this time, a completion date for the store is unknown, but we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
