Just a correction. Big Lot's is not a furniture store, but they do carry furniture items from time-to-time. It is hit and miss but you can get some good bargains on all kinds of items there. Groceries, household supplies, etc. My wife makes it a point to stop in there once-a-week to bargain shop.

They have a permanent furniture department. The selection can vary by store, tho

It's perfectly fine for my guest bedroom and won't break the bank.

Another follow up:

Of all places, I found that Mills Fleet Farm on the south side of Ankeny has (or can order) items from the complete Sauder line. They've got about a dozen pieces on display in the back of the store.

3875 SE Delaware Ave, Ankeny, IA‎
- (515) 964-3150

Fleet Farm - Farm, Pet, Auto, Clothing & Footwear At Great Prices

I went in there looking for chicken wire, which I use in the bottom of raised garden beds. I never expected to find Sauder furniture!

There is a new, huge Fleet Farm in Ankeny. Wonder if they have it?

Check the local second hand and antique shops in Des Moines.
You may find better quality and bargains there.
Also, if you are inclined to go for a Sunday drive you can come down I80 to Kalona and find a lot of used/antique items in the shops there.

I've been shopping for stuff and noticed a couple of things:

Big Lots carries Sauder

Also, Target's Room Essentials brand is made by Sauder.
