BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - "Big Lots" decided it needed a bigger lot, and now their new and improved store is open for business.
"We were looking for a big location so that we could showcase our large furniture assortment," said Allison Boer, district manager of the company. "We'll have consumable goods for the customers here in Bakersfield,"
Representatives from the company held their ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning, and even brought a special gift for the community.
Boer also presented a $1,500 check to Sandrini Elementary School, and said the new store will bring a large selection of products to a new community.
The new store is located in White Crossing Lane at 4751 White Lane, replacing the one located at 3580 Wilson Road.
