Big Lots kicks off summer savings with ‘inflation-busting’ discounts, new ad series

Bridesmaids’ star Wendi McLendon-Covey encourages customers to create their backyard oasis at Big Lots in new ad campaign

COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Big Lots, Inc. (NYSE: BIG), one of America’s largest home discount retailers, is stepping up to help customers beat inflation with deep discounts this summer, starting with savings of 25% to 50% on patio furniture and accessories, Broyhill furniture, and Sealy and Serta queen and king mattresses now through June 4. To promote the company’s summer sales, actress Wendi McLendon-Covey, of “The Goldbergs” and “Bridesmaids” fame, appears in new ads showing shoppers how to create a patio and backyard space envied by their neighbors.

“We know inflation and gas prices are on everyone’s minds right now, and it’s important that customers know we’re here for them, as we’ve always been. Helping them live big and save lots is our mission and built into everything we do,” said Bruce Thorn, president and CEO of Big Lots. “We offer the top brands our customers love at some of the lowest everyday prices anywhere. Stacking our inflation-busting discounts on top of already low prices is a significant opportunity for savings.”

The Memorial Day “Price Crush Summer Sale,” running now through June 4, features 50% off patio cushions, stacking chairs, tables, summer serveware and Broyhill home décor; 40% off wicker seating and outdoor lighting; and 30% off the entire stock of planters, pools, waterparks, summer toys and swim accessories. Customers can also save 25% on patio dining, grills and fire pits; Sealy and Serta queen and king mattresses; and Big Lots’ exclusive Broyhill furniture.

Big Lots launched its breakthrough “Be A BIGionaire” campaign featuring Retta, from “Good Girls” and “Parks and Recreation” in May 2021 and introduced a “Happy Have-it-all-idays” version with “Superstar” Molly Shannon and Eric Stonestreet of “Modern Family” at Christmastime. The new “Pati-OMG” ad leverages McLendon-Covey’s trademark comedic timing and talent.

“I love spending time outdoors and showing off my backyard, so I’m excited to be the new ‘BIGionaire’ for Big Lots’ summer ads,” said McLendon-Covey. “Big Lots is a fun, authentic brand that I love because they have a surprising variety of merch and it doesn’t break the bank. I was blown away by the quality of Big Lots furniture and décor I saw on set. I was tempted to buy gazebos for everyone in my family!”
