The company said this location store will reflect a new format, which is part of a broader initiative to reposition Big Lots as a community retailer offering trustworthy value and friendly service.

“We are honored to be selected by Big Lots as their charitable partner for the grand re-opening,” said Sandra Noe, executive director of Meals on Wheels. “This is a great chance to raise awareness about the meal delivery, wellness check, and volunteer visit Meals on Wheels provides throughout Lake and Porter counties, and engage the community in opportunities to support the mission.”
