BJ’s Wholesale Club, a leading wholesaler on the East Coast, recently announced that it will be expanding to eastern Michigan, a move that continues its movement westward. The two new clubs, slated to open in 2019, will be located in Madison Heights and Taylor.
“We’re thrilled to enter such a dynamic market and be a part of Michigan’s future,” said Christopher J. Baldwin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
The new clubs will enable Metro Detroit families to save about $500 a year on groceries, according to a press release.
“BJ’s is known for helping hard-working families save money, and Metro Detroit is a great fit for our clubs. Our expansion into this market is the result of our new, data-driven model for opening clubs, and we see significant potential in the region," Baldwin continued. "We’re ready to serve Eastern Michigan families and bring great career opportunities to the area.”
Each club will host an impressive array of prepared foods and a range of convenient services, including an option to buy groceries online and pick them up in the store. BJ’s also noted that the two clubs will bring approximately 300 new jobs to the area, as well as 1,000 construction jobs to support the project.
