Big Spot is a large store which first appeared in Season 4 of AMC's The Walking Dead. It is mainly based upon its real-life counterpart Big Lots!. It was abandoned and speculated to be used as a base for the U.S. Military--United States Marine Corps, specifically (this is because "USMC" appears on one of the vehicles).
Big Spot is a supermarket located near the West Georgia Correctional Facility.
When the outbreak began, a military outpost was set up at the entrance of the store, but was later abandoned for unknown reasons. At some point in time, a helicopter crashed onto the roof (the survivors of the incident were mostly likely eaten). Overtime, the wreckage began slowly weakening the roof of the store, causing a horde of walkers to fall in. Daryl, Michonne, Sasha, Tyreese, Glenn, Zach, and Bob find the store and use it to scavenge supplies. Upon going inside, it seems to be relatively safe. However, once the walkers begin falling in one at a time, this quickly changes. In the midst of this chaos, Zach is grabbed by a walker and bitten when the roof collapses in. The group quickly flees from the store to avoid any more deaths.
