Dear Big Lots,
You have disappointed me. I have long been impressed by your prices, and lately you’ve become my secret back-up place to find trendy things on the cheap. I’ve come to you for fun yellow bowls and flowery candleholders, for cute white vases and $19 area rugs.
But yesterday was a different story. Yesterday I saw this:
You threw me for a loop, Big Lots. One look at this adorable modern ottoman and I was hooked. I was so excited, picturing this at the foot of our bed in our master bedroom, that I even texted a picture to Stephen and said “I’m in love!”
Then I saw the price tag. $199. One hundred and 99 dollars?! I was expecting $50 or $80. You know, like the prices on everything else in your store. Heck, you sell cute chairs for $99, but an ottoman goes for twice that much?
What’s the deal, Big Lots? You built me up with your low, low prices and then you let me down. My ottoman-loving heart is officially broken.
Girl on a Budget
