I have been wondering who was going to vacant space on Blackstone just south of River Park Shopping Center. If you’ll remember, it used to be a giant Toys-R-Us but that went away a couple of years ago. Last year the space was temporarily used as a Spirit Halloween outlet in September and October. The suspense is over: Big Lots is coming! They’ve already got all the exterior signage up and there is a ton of equipment that’s been delivered and still in the wrapping and packaging. I’m a big fan of Big Lots and I’m totally excited for the big box discount retailer to open up shop.
