A massive retailer now permanently closes its biggest store in California in an unexpected turn of events.

Big Lots! has announced the closure of its biggest store in California this week.

According to a November 14th report from The-Sun, the 33,000-square-foot Big Lots! store in Carmichael, California will shutter in January of 2024.

Josh Chaney, a spokesperson for Big Lots, said “Consistent with standard retail practices, we review our store footprint on an ongoing basis to make sure we’re best positioned to successfully serve our customers and our business.” 

“Sometimes this process results in store closings or relocations.”

It is an anchor store within the Carmichael Center, and the second location to close in the area within 12 months, reports The-Sun.

In January of this year, Big Lots announced three stores would close in California, including the Carmichael location, and four other would shutter in Colorado.

In 2022, the company opened nearly 50 stores, but chief financial officer Jonathan Ramsden said that the number of closings will be similar to or slightly above 50 stores.

Bruce Thorn, Chief Executive Officer, cited drastic changes in shoppers’ spending habits as the reason behind the closure.

“Our sales and gross margin were in line with guidance and, importantly, year-over-year inventories continued to come down materially,” he said.

Thorn explained that Big Lots will “increasingly focus” on rural and smalltown markets where the company has proven to outperform similar discount retailers, according to reports.

“This holiday season, Big Lots is making it easier than ever for shoppers to take advantage of some of the year’s biggest bargains, with up to 50% off one-day deals every Friday through Christmas,” the CEO stated.
