ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A new Big Lots store opened its doors today in its new Forest Plaza location.
The new store is just one of 80 new ones nationally. The retailer is opening this year. District manager Rick Nordaker says the new location will offer more convenience for costumers and bring in more business.
"We felt like this would be a better location because of foot traffic, with all the other retailers are down here. We felt like we were a little bit isolated when we were on the other side of Alpine."
The new store in Forest Plaza replaces the outlet in the Highland Plaza Shopping Center.
