Same here. I don't care for Big Lots very much, but we often go to Ocean
State Job Lot. They have some hard to find items and at very good prices.
The hard goods are spotty, some good, some cheap crap, but if you know what
you are after, they have some really good buys.

As for the food, it is within the "use by" dates. Breads are brought in
fresh on a regular basis.
