When you shop at Big Lots, don’t expect to cross everything off your list. The shopping experience at the popular discount retailer is more of a treasure hunt.

Sure, you can shop for groceries and home goods on the cheap at Big Lots, but selection is inconsistent. And the company takes pride in providing surprises and special deals down every aisle.

Big Lots, which operates more than 1,400 stores nationwide, specializes in cutting deals on closeouts and overstocks from other retailers. Big Lots buys it on the cheap and sells it that way. As soon as you roll your shopping cart into a Big Lots store, you’re immediately hit with 50%-off deals and clearance racks with even bigger markdowns.

“A large percentage of Big Lots’ inventory comes from after-season overstock and discontinued products from retailers and manufacturers,” explains Brent Shelton, of deals website FatWallet.

Take a look at what to expect -- and how to save even more -- on your first or next visit to Big Lots.
