We could never imagine a store getting away with the name "Frugalstein's, " no matter how successful they became at moving cheap wares. So those of us of Scottish descent always wondered why the powers that be thought that a name like "MacFrugal's" -- obviously a tip of the tam to those thrifty Scots -- was acceptable. And hey, the new name "Big Lots!" sounds like something that Austin Powers' chunky kilt-wearing nemesis might say, anyway.
