Big Lots CEO Stepping Down
Columbus-based Big Lots is looking for a new chairman and CEO.
The news of Steve Fishman’s expected departure next year came Tuesday morning during a morning conference call where the company announced third quarter sales about $10 million below the same quarter last year, although sales still exceeded some analysts’ expectations.
Fishman joined Big Lots in 2005 and has seen the company go from marginal profits to record earnings last year and expansion after years of closing stores.

The company says the search for a replacement is already under way.
