Last Minute Gift Promotions Position Big Lots Drive To Christmas

Big Lots is promoting itself as a destination for last minutes gifts in store and online. The company even has created a Last Minute Gift section on its website to help procrastinators connect to gift giving faster.

Big Lots holiday specials include a huge toy clearance with half off select toys as well as kids electronics, adult games and puzzles. In addition, specials include a wide selection of $5 and $10 gifts, the retailer noted, as well as 20% off all plush or down-alternative blankets. Giftwrap also is on special with a single roll and multipack bags at $3.50 each.

The online gift section, which features in-store deals, includes an Emerson 12-volt auto vacuum for $12, a Remington Rotary Shaver for $22 and a Boston Warehouse Double Wall Beer Stein for $8, among other housewares items.

“This holiday season Big Lots has focused on providing last-minute gift buyers with a wide variety of gift options at the lowest possible prices,” stated Andrew Stein, Big Lots senior vp, chief customer officer. “Big Lots believes just because shoppers are short on time doesn’t mean they should have to compromise on finding a great gift.”
