“We are thrilled to announce that we are bringing a family-owned, farm, home, and outdoor retailer to Lansing to serve the community and surrounding areas,” said Matt Whebbe, Chairman & CEO at Big R. “We plan to carry all the mission-critical supplies our customers need to live the outdoor lifestyle: pet and animal supplies, farm equipment, sporting goods, workwear, tools, lawn and garden supplies, and a whole lot more.”

Lansing Mayor Andy Schor expressed excitement with the repurposing of this space.  He said, “This is a very active retail space on the Southside of Lansing, and I am excited that we will again have this building utilized. We welcome Big R to Lansing and are eager to see the positive impact they will have on Lansing residents and shoppers.”
