The popular discount retailer just barely missed the cut-off for last year (2015 rank: No. 501). Still, a good year (robust furniture sales in particular) has nudged the company into the Fortune 500 once more, where it has enjoyed a slot for 19 years. Big Lots’ revenue for 2015–$5.19 billion–may seem a modest uptick from sales in 2014 ($5.18 billion). Still, it’s a welcome rebound after four straight years of dwindling sales.
