HOBART, IN-Big Lots will occupy 28,000 square feet in the Sports Authority Center here. The discount retailer will now be one of three businesses located in the 84,000-square-foot shopping center. Sports Authority and Chicago Home Fitness are the two other retailers.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Big Lots to our center,” says Tracey Fitzgerald, Next Realty’s director of leasing. “It’s going to be a strong tenant mix; Big Lots and Sports Authority will play off each other well.”

The shopping center is located at the intersection of East Lincoln Highway and Colorado Street.

Big Lots will relocate from its current Merrillville location at 61st Avenue and Broadway. The new facility will give the company a prime location between the Hobart and Merrillville retail area.

Columbus, OH-based Big Lots has more than 1,300 stores in 47 states across the country.
