Big Lots is the best. They have all kinds of items, a variety of unusual items you won't find anywhere else. That is because they buy in quantities from other stores, most of it excess items but some discontinued items. They have very reasonable prices with some of it very cheap. The merchandise for the most part is high quality. In addition, they have great furniture and clothes. The clerks are ok, but you have to flag them down and maybe have to wait for help.
