This is a good discount store; it sells overruns or nearly expired items that the other chains want to get rid of. Because of this, there is no real regularity to the stock. Some days you'll find, say your favorite hairspray, and others you'll find nothing you can use. Those days are rare, however.
This is the first place to shop for greeting cards, Halloween costumes, Christmas decorations and gift wrap. Check the circular online before you make the trip to the store: biglots.com.
