Our 8 Indiana stores are located in Warsaw, 2 locations in Elkhart, Rochester, Wabash, Crawfordsville, Michigan City, and Marion. Our 2 stores in Ohio are located in Lima and Findlay. And 1 location in Wisconsin in Burlington. The offices and warehouses for Big R remain in Watseka, IL.

We are a premier farm, outdoors, and home retailer committed to outfitting every customer with the lifestyle essentials they need to live the life they want. We are equally committed to making sure our team is supported in doing their best work and living the life they want. Our people are team players who seek challenges, thrive on creating effective solutions, and revel in new ideas. Full-time Big R employees are eligible for health and dental insurance, as well as several ancillary benefits, such as short-term and long-term disability, vision insurance, child and spouse life insurance, a generous 401K plan, an employee discount, and more. 

To put it simply, we enjoy the heck out of our work and our stellar colleagues. If the sound of that makes your heart beat a little faster and piques your sense of adventure, send us your resumé!
