LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Big Lots on La Crosse's south side celebrated its grand opening Friday.
Part of the store's mission is to partner with the local community.
So Big Lots presented a $1,500 check to Hintgen Elementary School to fund their technology program.
"We chose Hintgen because they have a very strong technological program that they wanted to put the money toward, and we felt like that would be vital to helping them proceed with their program that they have," Jeff Arndt, Big Lots store manager.
Arndt said for the first time in Big Lots' history, staff handed out scratch offs to the first 100 customers. They could win up to $100 dollars off their purchase.
