Meaning and history

Odd Lots Logo history

1982 – 1999

Odd Lots Logo 1982
The company’s original logo looked bright and welcoming thanks to the orange color. It not only made the customers excited but also encouraged them to check out what the store has to offer. The logo featured only the original name of the brand. It was printed using all uppercase letters using thick strokes that had rounded ends. The font looked a lot like Soap Regular or VI Thuy Tien Hoa, only with a straight “O”.

1999 – 2001

Odd Lots Logo 1999
This logo for Big Lots was designed in 1999 and used by the retailer for just a couple of years. It was very modern for those times inscription in a bold rounded serif font, written in all capital letters. The smooth and sleek lines of the typeface are very close to the famous ITC American Typewriter Pro Bold Condensed font, which looks professional and solid.
The use of classic style was balanced by bright color, reflecting energy, movements, and a progressive approach. This combination made the logo truly remarkable.

1984 – 1999

Until all stores were rebranded as “Big Lots”, the company used the “Odd Lots” name alongside the newly opened “Big Lots” stores. Both logos looked almost identical thanks to the use of the same color and font. the fact that the word length was also the same only enhanced this effect.

1999 – 2001

Just like with the previous versions. The company created a “Big Lots” version that featured a yellow rectangular background, bold red lettering for the name, and a smaller inscription underneath that said “Bargains – Closeouts”.
