Well, it’s official: Big Lots is coming to Anaheim Hills. According to the OC Register, the lease has been signed and they might move in as early as this summer.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’m not a fan of this at all. “Close-out prices” and clearance items are neither needed nor wanted in Anaheim Hills. I’ve been in a Big Lots (near my work) and they are junky, messily filled with unappealing merchandise and disinterested employees. I also find it ‘heartening’ how the owner of the property ignored the community demographics and desires to put in a store that in my opinion, no local will shop at. Thanks, man-whose-name-I-don’t-know. Appreciate it.
On a funny note: The spokewoman from Big Lots says she hoped that “the firm’s close-out moments would win residents over” and she thinks “they will be calling each other to say what bargains they have found.” Right.
