CELEBRATING NEW GRAND OPENING BIG LOTS IN JENSEN BEACH -DONATION TO SAFESPACE
Big Lots announced today it is celebrating the grand opening of its newest store in Jensen Beach, Florida, on Friday, August 23, 2019. This store will reflect a new format, which is part of a broader initiative to reposition the brand as a community retailer offering trustworthy value and friendly service. As part of the celebration, Big Lots will host a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony at 8:30 a.m. on August 23. The first 50 shoppers entering the store on August 23 and August 24, will receive a reusable shopping bag filled with tasty treats from Big Lots. In addition, the company will kick off donation program benefiting SafeSpace, the Treasure Coast area’s only certified domestic violence center offering safety, support and education to victims and their children, empowering them to create an independent life free from violence. Big Lots will donate five dollars to the local charitable organization each time a BIG Rewards loyalty member redeems a reward at the Jensen Beach store over a six-week period (August 23-October 5).
“We are excited to introduce our new store format to Jensen Beach,” stated Steve Haffer, senior vice president chief customer officer of Big Lots. “It brings to life our new brand traits and showcases our product assortments of affordable solutions in Furniture, Seasonal, Home, Food, and Consumables. We are also very proud to serve alongside the Jensen Beach community with our support of SafeSpace.”
At 29,495 square feet, the new store, located at 3550 Northwest Federal Highway, Jensen Beach, FL, will be a showcase for the continued roll out of a new store layout and design across all Big Lots stores, both in new builds as well as in redesigns at existing locations. Big Lots will host local dignitaries, a Big Lots Celebrity Shopper, representatives from SafeSpace and other community guests at the ribbon cutting.
