It's going to be a short stay in Thunder Bay for the city's Big Lots store.
Big Lots opened at the end of October at the former Liquidation World location at Northwood Mall. But there is now word that the discount operation will be shut down in the near future.
The retailer’s parent company, Big Lots Incorporated, says its part of a move to close 78 of their stores country-wide.
Officials with the company say it simply hasn't been able to gain the traction in the Canadian market that it had anticipated.
There is no word yet on the exact date of the closure.
