Join us as we celebrate the grand opening of the NEW Bellingham Big Lots! 8:30 a.m. on August 23 at their new location on Birchwood Ave. The first 50 shoppers entering the store on Friday August 23 and Saturday August 24 will receive a reusable shopping bag filled with tasty treats from Big Lots. In addition, the company will kick off a donation program benefiting Communities In Schools of Whatcom-Skagit, which is part of the nation’s leading dropout prevention organization, working in public schools to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Big Lots will donate $5 to the local charitable organization each time a BIG Rewards loyalty member redeems a reward at the Bellingham store over a six-week period (August 23-October 5).
