For this type of store, goods inside change weekly according to what has
been brought in from salvage, going out of business and overstock sales.
Our Big Lots puts out a flyer that is useless to me. It gets delivered on
Wednesday, but the new store goods are available beginning on Tuesday. Any
stuff that was a real deal is gone by Tuesday noon.
